Campaigning for the Protection and Promotion of Human Rights, Democracy, the Rule of Law and International Justice
Priorities for action for all programs are selected on the basis of the needs as determined on the ground, involving all stakeholders in the design and implementation of activities. In advocacy activities, NPWJ raises awareness and fosters public debate through explicitly political campaigns and the implementation of key programs, such as international and regional meetings, often co-hosted and co-organised with Government of the country in which they are held, fostering partnerships between public institutions, non-governmental organisations and other actors in society, to attain stakeholders’ ownership both of the political drive and of the results.
NPWJ’s programs strategy is implemented through multiple-donor and multi-regional projects, involving NGOs, civil society actors, parliament, government and inter-governmental partners.
