Know your rights

Often human rights are violated just because people lack knowledge about them. Estonian Human Rights Centre with partners in Latvia and Lithuania have put together an online guide to fill this gap. Everyone has the right to know their rights. The Human Rights Guide is an online information and education resource and a self-help tool for everyone.

Have my rights been violated? Where can I get help? Which rights have been violated?

These and many other questions will be answered in the guide. With the help of this platform, every person can self-assess their situation, identify a violation of fundamental rights or just receive more information on their rights.

We are constantly adding and updating the topics in the guide. Right now, topics like right to fair trial, involuntary placement and mental health care, freedom of expression and the media, detention and custody are available. Soon, chapters on data and privacy, prisons and discrimination will be published.
