René Cassin

René Cassin promotes and protects universal human rights drawing on Jewish experience and values.

We do this through a combination of advocacy; policy analysis; public campaigning and education; and building the capacity of activists and lawyers to promote and protect human rights.

Our current campaigns include:

  • highlightling the evils of modern slavery and human trafficking
  • calling for a 28-day time limit to immigration detention
  • solidarity with discrimination faced by the UK's Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities
  • opposing hate speech and hate crime
  • speaking out against China's genocidal treatment of its Uyghur Muslims
  • underlining the vital role of the Human Rights Act and the European Convention on Human Rights in helping ordinary people in everyday situations
