Human rights, good governance and faith

In partnership with a range of actors, including human rights defenders, rights based groups, multi-lateral bodies and like-minded countries, we work to promote the human rights of individuals and secure the protection needs of the most vulnerable, as enshrined in international law.

Freedom of religion or belief, protection of ethnic and religious minorities, indigenous populations, LGBTI+ persons and other marginalised communities are at the core of our discussions, facilitated to build trust and enable productive exchanges of experience and expertise between policy makers, front-line practitioners, business, faith leaders and civil society.

Our commitment to transparent, accountable governance, the protection of independent journalism and countering online and offline threats to democratic processes including disinformation, underpin our wider programmes in support of security and stability.
