Organization Background

Center for Human Rights Defenders Association (CHRDA) Is an independent non-governmental organization registered and founded in France in 2016. CHRDA aims to promote the rights of Human Rights Defenders and vulnerable populations, analyze the difficulties facing the application of International Human Rights Law and disseminating Human Rights Culture in the MENA Region, and engage in a dialogue between cultures. A crucial part of CHRDA’s mandate is to help shape the understanding of the most pressing human rights defenders’ concerns within the region and then coordinate and mobilize the key players and NGOs from across the Arab world to work together. CHRDA is a member of the Platform (Coalition of 13 Libyan organizations).

Furthermore, CHRDA is a Libyan HRD’s network, supporting, empowering, and protecting Libyan HRDs inside and outside Libya. CHRDA emerged from the need to find a space for Jurists outside their country, especially with the outbreak of armed conflict in several cities in Libya and targeting defenders and activists; attacks and abuses sometimes reached the limit of assassinations.
