Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor
The Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor has declared its mission to establish an independent and nongovernmental organization that would work across the region to investigate and expose oppression and atrocities has become urgent. Our mission must not only be to observe and document violations of human rights, but also to inform public opinion and “plant the seeds” for international mobilization by advocacy organizations, governmental bodies, watchdog groups and grassroots activists. International law must once again become a respected tool of world governance, to which the downtrodden and persecuted can look for relief through recognition and redress, including compensation. Impunity must become an artifact of the past, no matter how wealthy or influential the party
The Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor is a youth-led independent, nonprofit organization that advocates for the human rights of all persons across Europe and the MENA region, particularly those who live under occupation, in the throes of war or political unrest and/ or have been displaced due to persecution or armed conflict. Euro-Med Monitor was established in November 2011 and is registered in Switzerland (CH-660.0.748.015-1), where it maintains its official headquarters. It was founded by a group of European youth from diverse origins, MENA immigrants and students living in Europe, who were inspired by the people’s will to rebel against tyranny and oppression that swept through the Arab region in 2011 and continues to percolate everywhere. Euro-Med Monitor strives to support these movements by planting the seeds for international mobilization and stimulating human rights organizations and decision-makers to focus on violation of the people’s right to expression and freedom.
What makes Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor innovative?
Euro-Mediterranean operates as a complement to and partner with other human rights organizations in the MENA region. Through our news bulletins, video interviews and in-depth reports, we both expose incidents with detail not available through other sources, and probe broad patterns of behavior that call out for sustained attention. When helpful, we pose recommendations for dealing with humanitarian crises and helping those affected.
