Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom Opens Human Rights Hub in Geneva

The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting freedom and human rights worldwide, has officially opened its Human Rights Hub in Geneva on Wednesday, July 10, 2024. The Hub will serve as a center for the defense and promotion of human rights, providing support for journalists, lawyers, and activists who put their own freedom and lives at risk in the pursuit of upholding universal human rights. Dr. Michaela Lissowsky will serve as the Hub’s director.

According to Anne Brasseur, former President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and member of the Board of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, “Geneva is the world capital of human rights and the rule of law. This is where people come together, network, become visible and have their voices heard. All over the world, people are threatened, imprisoned or tortured if they want to express their opinion, argue their case in court or report critically.” She further emphasized the importance of standing up for the universal application of human rights, which is at the core of the Foundation’s mission.

The Human Rights Hub in Geneva has received praise from German Federal Minister of Justice, Dr. Marco Buschmann, who will be inaugurating the Hub. He states, “Human rights protect people. They protect the individual. At the same time, it is individuals who stand up and fight for these rights. It takes individuals with courage.” Minister Buschmann also acknowledges the role of the Hub in providing support for these courageous individuals, saying, “The Human Rights Hub of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom in Geneva will support them in finding that help, winning over fellow campaigners and generating attention.”

The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom’s Human Rights Hub will serve as a valuable resource for those fighting for human rights around the world. More information about the work of the Hub can be found at their website: https://www.freiheit.org/human-rights-hub-0
