The Centre for Law and Democracy believes in a world in which robust respect for all human rights underpins strong participatory democracy at all levels of governance – local, national, regional and international – leading to social justice and equality.

The Centre for Law and Democracy works to promote, protect and develop those human rights which serve as the foundation for or underpin democracy, including the rights to freedom of expression, to vote and participate in governance, to access information and to freedom of assembly and association.

Goals and Strategies
We will seek to achieve our mission through:

  • Undertaking research and educational outreach to advance the understanding of civil society and the wider public globally about those human rights which serve as a foundation for or underpin democracy.
  • Using research and technical assistance to help governments and officials around the world to uphold international and constitutional standards regarding human rights which underpin democracy.
  • Building the understanding of inter-governmental organisations and non-governmental organisations regarding human rights which underpin democracy, so that they can better realise their goals.
  • Conducting research and policy work to contribute to ensuring the continuous relevance and development of human rights which underpin democracy.
