Observatory of Rights, Liga Guineense dos Direitos Humanos

ORGANISATION BACKGROUND AND LOCAL CONTEXT

The Observatory of Rights intends to develop a culture of human rights in Guinea-Bissau, favoring citizen action and the effective respect of all rights. It’s about developing a culture of multidimensionality, which includes civic, political, economic, social and cultural rights, as well as environmental and cybernetic rights. These are the basis of the rela-tionship between citizens and the power institutions and its practices — political traditional and religious power in the household and in other forms of power. The contribution for a human rights’ culture emerges from the need to oppose the current culture of impunity and sense of insecurity, either in the public or in the private spheres. The Observatory of Rights was created to improve the knowledge and monitoring of human rights in Guinea-Bissau. This implies creating the conditions to access information about human rights in the development of actions focused on the rights, with a higher level of coordination and interac-tion between Civil Society Organisations (CSO) and the development of its intervention capacities and an increased knowledge about human rights by society in general.  .
