We are the STP

As an independent international human rights organisation, we take a stand for persecuted minorities and Indigenous communities.

We document human rights violations, inform the public, raise awareness and protect the interests of affected groups to authorities and decision-makers.

We support local efforts to strengthen the human rights of minorities and Indigenous communities, and work both nationally and internationally with organisations and individuals who pursue similar goals.
