About ECDHR

The European Centre for Democracy and Human Rights (ECDHR) is a non-profit organisation based in Brussels (BE) and registered in Dublin (IR). It was created in January 2015. ECDHR is seeking to promote human rights and democracy in the Gulf region.

ECDHR engages with EU institutions, media and other relevant stakeholders in Brussels in order to raise awareness and promote the respect of fundamental human rights in the Gulf region. ECDHR also collaborates closely with other international NGOs committed to the issues of human rights and democracy in the region.

OUR MISSION & APPROACH

The European Centre for Democracy and Human Rights (ECDHR) advocates for the respect of human rights in GCC countries on an impartial and inclusive basis, regardless of political views, religious affiliation, gender or nationality of the victims.

Therefore, we do not advocate for any specific political or religious group, nor for any specific political or religious cause, but we go at lengths in defending and supporting those individuals and groups who suffer violations of their fundamental rights and freedoms.

Our primary goal is to achieve full implementation of obligations governments in the Gulf subscribed to, both through international human rights conventions and their own legislation.

Please consult a non-exhaustive list of causes and cases we are working on here.
