Through research and advocacy, we aim to create informed public opinion and participation by ensuring access to information for vulnerable groups; making the justice system accessible for people and seeking accountability from institutions established to preserve democratic values and protect human rights. In this process, YHRD partners with various rights-based groups to further multi-stakeholder participation and engagement. We work on issues pertaining to human rights through the following methods –
The aim is to conduct rigorous research and documentation on violations of human rights and archive resource material for community level learning.
