The Arab Institute for Human Rights was established in 1989. In addition to its role as an organization entrusted with human rights, the Institute is represented in all Arab countries. Its inception came as a response to an initiative taken by three Arab organizations: the Arab Human Rights Organization, the Union of Arab Lawyers and the Tunisian League for the Protection of Human Rights.
The Arab Institute for Human Rights was established to help provide an educational and cultural tool that would reinforce the human rights movement and implement its agenda through the dissemination of human rights culture and values.
Hassan Aydinli, ITF Europe Representative attended this workshop.
