At Justice & Peace, we believe that local change makers are the key to progress human rights and social justice for all. Our work is focused on enabling these peaceful individuals, and connecting and inspiring people to take action and create change for human rights, justice, peace, and a more sustainable world.
Together with our Dutch and international partners, we provide support to human rights defenders at risk and strengthen the integration of refugees.
