The Think Tank of human rights. global dialog.
The Geneva Centre for Human Rights Advancement and Global Dialogue is a non-governmental, non-profit organisation based in Geneva, Switzerland. We work in cooperation with the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights and United Nations Human Rights Council to promote and protect human rights through global dialogue. We are independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest, or religion.
The Centre was founded on the belief that human rights dialogue across cultures, regions, and sectors is not yet optimal, and we aim to place human rights at the centre of governance throughout the world by promoting mutual understanding and cooperative relations across these boundaries.
We function as a platform to bring together the United Nations, intergovernmental organisations, governments, academia, civil society and human rights defenders with national human rights institutions and the private sector, and we coordinate international conferences, provide human rights training, and advise governments and related agencies.
