Annual Report 2016
The Annual Assembly of the Norwegian Helsinki Committee has released the 2016 Annual report. The report illustrated the wide range of activities NHC of last year, and underlined the importance of continued engagement for fundamental human rights in an unstable world. Human rights in Turkey, Russia, Central Asia and the South Caucasus remain in the center of our attention, where we through cooperation with local civil society are an efficient advocate for fundamental human rights defense at home and abroad. In 2016, we became a member of the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) and also the assumed the responsibility of hosting the secretariat for the International Panel of Parliamentarians for Freedom of Religion or Belief (IPPFoRB).
