Agir Ensemble pour les Droits Humains (AEDH)

Agir ensemble pour les droits humains is an international NGO based in Lyon, which has been working for over 33 years to defend freedoms and human rights around the world. Our work is centred around the following actions: 

  • Providing financial and technical support for small and emerging organisations working to defend human rights in countries where they are violated; 

  • Providing preventive and reactive protection for human rights defenders whose safety is threatened because of their work; 

  • Engaging in networked advocacy with civil society, public authorities and international organisations 

Our mission focuses on allying ourselves with civil society actors working in the fight against human rights violations on the ground. Our actions help to strengthen their capacities and support their emergence. 

Throughout the world, we encourage the growth and development of organisations working to defend and promote civil and political rights, as well as economic, social and cultural rights. Our partnerships are based on equality, trust, exchange, respect, and reciprocity.
