Looking back on 2021: Human rights in times of crises


At ECCHR, another turbulent year lies behind us. And yet, crises can bring an enormous potential for social change, which is why we choose to see the current upheavals as an opportunity for human rights work. One of our areas of focus in 2021 was to bring together diverse voices in our event series Human rights in times of crises in order to further the interventions of decolonial, feminist and ecological perspectives. We welcome you to have a look at our discussions and the accompanying book. I also invite you to read about our work during the last year in this newsletter, which is and remains possible only thanks to your support.
