We are a non-profit and non-governmental organisation focusing on freedom of religion or belief. The IHRC has specific expertise and experience of working with marginalised religious groups and advocating their precarious position to bring about effective change so that they can enjoy the same rights as other citizens.
The IHRC is headquartered in London, England with members around the globe. Its members consist of human rights professionals, lawyers, politicians and academics. The IHRC works, in a collaborative manner, with International and National Partners, including States, United Nations, EU Institutions, NGOs and human rights activists to promote freedom of religion or belief.
It has experience of working particularly in Asia and the Middle East, given the human rights violations in those regions. In this regard, advice and training are regularly provided on country specific issues through independent expert reports.
The IHRC is in the process of applying for Consultative Status with ECOSOC.
