Willkommen auf der Website des Resource Centres.

Wir machen es uns zur Aufgabe, mit Menschenrechtsfürsprecher*innen aus Zivilgesellschaft, Wirtschaft und Regierungen zusammenzuarbeiten, um ungleiche Machtverhältnisse anzugehen, Wiedergutmachung für Menschenrechtsverletzungen zu erreichen und den Schutz von Mensch und Planet sicherzustellen.

Sowohl Unternehmen als auch betroffene Gemeinschaften schätzen unsere Unterstützung und Materialien.

Das ist nur durch Ihre Unterstützung möglich. Wir freuen uns über Ihre Spende.

Vielen Dank,
