About us

Human Rights Research Center (HRRC) is a non-governmental organization that aims to advance human rights in Armenia through in-depth research and evidence-based advocacy.

HRRC is a registered non-governmental organization and operates since 2018.

Our vision is the creation of an open platform for comprehensive, cross-sectoral research that will contribute to the advancement of rights-based decision making and the growth of public’s comprehensive knowledge in human rights issues in Armenia.

Our mission is to enrich the pool of in-depth research in the field of human rights in Armenia for the purposes of evidence-based advocacy and dissemination of information about the state of human rights among a range of stakeholders, thus advancing human rights and fundamental freedoms in Armenia.

The idea of establishment of HRRC was born out of the need to create a platform that carries out cross-sectoral and detailed analysis of various human rights issues in Armenia this way acting as a source of knowledge and tool for human rights activists, academia, researchers, public institutions, international organizations etc.

Throughout our centre’s operation we aim to cover the wide range of human rights issues, reveal gaps in legislation and practice and the existing trends and patterns related to the state of human rights in Armenia, this way also acting as an impartial, independent and research-oriented human rights monitoring and advocacy institution.
