Founded in 1986, Rights and Humanity is the brainchild of its' Founder and President, Professor Julia Häusermann MBE, a visionary pragmatist, who set up the organisation 25 years ago. Rights and Humanity is the pioneer of the Human Rights Approach to Development and over the last two and half decades has had a considerable influence on global policy and practice, which in turn has helped millions of poor and disadvantaged people across the world to realise their human rights and dignity. Rights and Humanity's main focus is the Three Step Plan to achieve Global Peace, Justice and Sustainability. For more information, please click here.
