Who we are : www.iranhrc.org
The Austrian non-governmental organization Südwind was implementing the project in co-operation with its partners. Südwind was founded in 1979 and has been in consultative status with the Economic and Social Council since 2009. Südwind is committed to sustainable global development, human rights and fair working conditions. Südwind’s work in Austria is conducted via a network of regional offices and partners. At the local, regional, national, and international levels, Südwind cooperates with organizations and institutions in the fields of international development, education, environment, culture, and social issues, as well as with various civil society networks and important political figures. Since 2010 Iranian HRDs participated in the Human Rights Council, delivering statements and organising parallel events on human rights in Iran through Südwind’s support. We work closely with our Iranian partners when raising individual cases and drawing international attention to the human rights situation in Iran.
