The organization Nota Bene was established in December 2009. It is one of the first human rights and democracy think tanks in Tajikistan. The organization works to promote human rights and the development of civil society in Tajikistan. It monitors the human rights situation in Tajikistan, prepares analytical reports and documents directed at international and regional human rights bodies (such as, the UN, the Council of Europe, the OSCE), and reviews national legislation with the aim of bringing it into conformity with international human rights standards. The organization also hosts education sessions for a range of target groups, works to increase NGO capacity to implement public interest projects, and provides support to legal teams in specific strategic litigation suits.
