Who we are
As an independent international human rights organization, the Society for Threatened Peoples (STP) stands by minorities and indigenous peoples.
We document human rights violations, we inform the public and raise their awareness of human rights issues. And we protect the interests of those affected in dealings with the authorities and decision-makers.
We support local efforts to strengthen the human rights of minorities and indigenous peoples, and work both nationally and internationally with organisations and individuals who pursue similar goals.
