Helsinki Committee for Human Rights of Republic of Macedonia

Skopje, Macedonia
Joined December 2016
Presence in: Macedonia
Mission

The Helsinki Committee for Human Rights of the Republic of Macedonia (MHC) is a non-governmental organization for human rights promotion and protection, without any political and religious orientation.

The reasons why the MHC exists are: to increase the awareness about the concept of human rights and basic freedoms which is embedded in the Universal Declaration for Human Rights, the two international covenants (on civil and political rights and on social, economic and cultural rights), the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, and the 1975 Final Helsinki Act; to build democratic conditions in which these rights and freedoms can be exercised; and to stimulate a greater protection in the exercise of these rights and freedoms.

The MHC monitors the situation of the human rights, provides legal assistance & counseling to the citizens in cases of violation or restriction of the rights and freedoms, and cooperates with other organizations and state authorities in the direction of increasing the promotion, protection and respect for the human rights and freedoms.
