Activism & Art

In order to sustainably change the law, a transformation of social power relations is needed – and new laws have to be created. This is why ECCHR initiates and participates in legal and law-related policy debates, organizes public events and publishes on selected topics. We also see cooperation with artists as an opportunity to reach people, to heighten their awareness of injustice and to allow for new perspectives. We believe that art can offer those affected by injustices a platform to be heard and to collectively address the legacies of conflicts.
