How do we bring about social change? Since its inception, ECCHR has always attempted to find new answers to this question. Most often, we take the legal route – and attempt to draw attention to both past and existing injustice through specifically selected cases. Yet, this cannot be enough, which is why ECCHR continues to collaborate with cultural institutions such as museums and theaters.
These interventions in the public sphere serve to bring human rights work closer to the people. Here, the focus is not on legal questions but, rather, on the necessity of bringing serious crimes and their underlying power structures to light.
