Human Rights/Refugees

  • Centar za mir, nenasilje i i ljudska prava /Centre for Peace, Nonviolence and Human Rights
    Ideja i mogućnost utemeljenja javila se u vrijeme najintenzivnijih ratnih događanja na području Osijeka kao potreba da se unutar lokalne zajednice demonstrira alternativan pristup nasilnom sukobu. Nekoliko je ljudi (liječnika, prosvjetnih djelatnika, studenata, pravnika i ekonomista) eljelo aktivno pridonijeti stvaranju i odr avanju civilnog društva otpornog na podjele (etničke, vjerske, političke ili ideološke) nametnute ratnim nasiljem.
    The idea came in a bomb shelter during the most violent war offensives in the Osijek region as a need to demonstrate an alternative approach to violent conflict. A group of people (doctors, teachers, students, lawyers and economists) wanted to make an active contribution to the creation and maintenance of a civil society resistant to divisions (ethnic, religious, political or ideological) imposed by the violence of war.

Women

Be Active, Be Emancipated - Budi aktivna, budi emancipirana (B.a.B.e.) is a strategic group located in Zagreb, Croatia, which works for the affirmation and implementation of women's human rights.

B.a.B.e. lobbies for the recognition and improved status of women's human rights, such as: the right to be free of violence, both at home and in the public sphere; the right to reproductive choice and reproductive health, including the decision of when to create and how to raise children, and the rights to equal and full participation in all aspects of society, especially in leadership roles and decision-making.
