About Us

The Human RightS Initiative (HRSI) is an awareness raising and capacity building organization based at Central European University (CEU). It was founded in 1999 by the students of the CEU Legal Studies Human Rights Program. Since then it has grown into an internationally-recognized human rights organization, focusing on youth involvement, education and active student participation. HRSI's mission is to promote social engagement through awareness raising and capacity building. Our main target groups are CEU students and alumni, local and regional students, NGO staff and activists as well as local and regional NGOs.

HRSI works with local and regional human rights organizations, as well as international organizations such as the Council of Europe. HRSI is composed of a Coordinating Body, Core Advisors, External Advisors and an Executive Board. HRSI's Coordinating Body consists of three recent CEU graduates who work in the HRSI Office. The 2015-2016 Coordinating Body is Zsofi, Lien, and Krisztina. Please stop by the HRSI Office and visit them anytime.
