Human rights guide gets an update

Our first foreign work trip after two years of pandemic took Egert and Kelly to Riga last week. Together with our Latvian and Lithuanian partners, we discussed the developments and future of the human rights guide, which we launched eight years ago.

The guide is a great and easy tool to raise everyone’s awareness of human rights. At the meeting, we exchanged ideas on how to make the platform even more user-friendly and content-rich. Even before the summer, the guide will get a new look and there will be ten court cases that have most influenced Estonian case law. At the end of the summer, we will be able to share new actual themes, such as the right to health, the permissibility of restrictions on human rights and the right to education.

The human rights guide, developed in co-operation with our the Baltic partners, has already been extended to Slovakia, Slovenia and Bulgaria and is being extended to France and Croatia. Read the human rights guide, use it yourself and recommend it to friends and acquaintances, because human rights are only useful if we all know our rights.

Since you are here...

It is important to protect everyone’s human rights, because it helps to keep stability and peace in the society. There are many challenges for protection of human rights in Estonia: intolerance has really come out of the closet. Bad things happen when good people are too passive, but together we can make a change.
