The Geneva Centre for Human Rights Advancement and Global Dialogue (“The Geneva Centre”) is a think-thank dedicated to the promotion of human rights through cross-cultural, political, religious and civilizational dialogue, and through training of the upcoming generations of stakeholders in the Arab region.
We work towards a value-driven human rights system, challenging politicisation and building bridges between different narratives thereon of the Global North and of the Global South. The aim is to act as a platform for dialogue between a variety of stakeholders involved in the promotion and protection of human rights.
We place human rights at the centre of governance throughout the world by promoting mutual understanding and cooperative relations between people.
The Geneva Centre is independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest, or religion.
The main objectives of the Geneva Centre are to:
- Contribute to the safeguarding of, and respect for, human rights and dignity in accordance with established international standards.
- Encourage global dialogue on the values of justice, tolerance and rejection of bigotry and promote, amongst others, the principles of understanding, constructive humanistic dialogue and respect of others.
- Promote human rights awareness among the general Arab and Muslim public andinter-cultural understanding around the world.
- Provide advice to governmental and international agencies on human rights and global dialogue issues.
The Geneva Centre aims to raise awareness and respect for human rights by means of monitoring and documenting, and training within the MENA region, and bridging the gaps through global dialogue.
Global human tolerance to provide social harmony worldwide.
