Swiss Helsinki Committee

The Swiss Helsinki Committee (Schweizerische Helsinki Vereinigung) aims at respecting, promoting and implementing the principles and commitments of the OSCE, in particular of the Human Dimension. In pursuing this goal, it spreads information on how to ensure the respect for human rights and how to implement democratic principles and the rule of law. It organises events on specific themes in this context  as well as training programs and activities in various OSCE countries and in Switzerland, in the past years with an additional focus on young people.
