For fifty years, Justice & Peace has been advocating for human rights-based policies at the Dutch and international level. Our recommendations to policymakers rely on collaborative research together with our partners around the world.
Our publications reflect our advocacy efforts towards Dutch and European Union policymakers but also on the international scene through our consultative status with the Economic and Social council of the United Nations (ECOSOC) to give voice and power to the people we support.
Our current projects are built on this long-standing expertise of issues related to human rights defenders and forced migration.

EVALUATION REPORT: Samen Hier Student Community, The Samen Hier Student Community is a joint initiative by the Unicef Student Team The Hague (USTTH) and Justice & Peace.

IMPACT REPORT: Community sponsorship of resettled refugees in Dutch municipalities: an achievable possibility!, In June 2022, we published the impact report about the Samen Hier pilot in Rotterdam. In the report, we look back on the results, the experiences, and the recommendations of the Samen Hier sponsor groups, the municipality of Rotterdam, VluchtelingenWerk Nederland and the executive partner organisation Rotterdam Verwelkomt Vluchtelingen. These are positive and promising. All those involved see added value in this approach and a public-private partnership for the reception of resettled refugees.
