Focus Areas: Human rights in Hungary
Authoritarian and populistic forces are growing stronger in many parts of the world. One thing they have in common is to obstruct the work of NGOs dealing with human rights. One of the most flagrant exemples of this is the regime in Hungary. IFS wants to advocate against this and tries to support NGOs, e g in Hungary, that are working for human rights, inclusion and social justice.
This “Statement for defending the rights of NGOs in Hungary” was taken by the IFS board in Morocco 2019-06-14.
