FNI inaugurates a Global Human Rights Observatory

Updated: Oct 31, 2022



Established in 1948, the United Nations is entrusted with the unique global mandate to promote and protect human rights and fundamental freedoms for all.


Ancillary to this mandate, the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) periodically invites contributions from various stakeholders, including academic institutions.


​In attention to this important space, Facts and Norms Institute recently established a new Global Human Rights Observatory (GHRO).


A permanent project in the service of humanity


The Observatory is set as a permanent project. Under the coordination of professor Henrique Napoleão Alves, it will monitor the demands of the UN and identify the ones which can be met by the Institute.


"The new project is structured under the motto 'Research for humankind'. 'Legal and social research in the service of humankind – that is what we were made for', says Alves. 'The Observatory will allow us to deepen our humanitarian pursuits.'"

We will work closely with the researchers at Facts and Norms”, says Alves, “as well as with invited researchers from various backgrounds (government, international organizations, civil society in general, academia, and so on).”
