Activity

  • In 2004, Euro-Mediterranean Foundation of Support to Human Rights Defenders (EMHRF) was established by EuroMed Rights, then called Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Network (EMHRN), which is a “network of more than 80 human rights organisations, institutions, and individuals based in 30 countries.”
  • EMHRF provides “strategic financial assistance” to “human rights defenders in difficulty or at risk, for the specific purpose of allowing them to pursue their activities, as well as to small human rights organisations or groups with the aim of strengthening their capacities in implementing innovative activities in the region.”
  • In 2016, EMHRF supported seven NGOs that claim to “report human rights violations, the involvement of Israeli and international companies in the occupation of Palestinian and Syrian territories, and the destruction of houses and population displacement to the media, including social media, and UN mechanisms.”
