Take action

Our presence in Geneva allows us to advocate for Right Livelihood Laureates and their causes by engaging with United Nations human rights mechanisms and other key international institutions.

The advocacy work is a crucial tool to improve Laureates’ working environment as well as to ensure the safety of those at risk. To make this a reality, we regularly engage in activities around the UN Human Rights Council, Special Procedures, the Universal Periodic Review and Treaty Bodies.
