Global Voices is now hosting research and commentary published by the New York-based human rights watchdog, the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran.
We are committed to telling all sides of the story inside Iran, and human rights concerns are a big part of understanding the country.
The Campaign has consistently provided in-depth reportage and analysis on a broad array of issues concerning Iranians. Their meticulous research and documentation and informed advocacy for human rights has garnered them a reputation of impartiality and reliability along with much international trust and respect.
The Campaign was founded in 2008 as a non-partisan, non-profit, independent human rights organisation. Global Voices has relied on the Campaign’s reportage and team of experts when covering major human rights concerns, so we enthusiastically welcome this new collaboration to enrich our Iran page.
“Global Voices shines a spotlight on those who strive for justice and equality worldwide,” said Hadi Ghaemi, Executive Director of the Campaign. “We are very pleased to be able to add to this unique platform the voices of those who are struggling for their rights inside Iran.”
We encourage our readers to visit the Campaign’s website, www.iranhumanrights.org, and read more about the work they are doing protecting and promoting basic rights and freedoms in Iran.
