About Us – World Solidarity Forum

Our Mission

All around the world people are struggling to create a better life for themselves and ensure a better one for generations to come. International human rights law is one of our greatest moral achievements, yet violations of our basic and most fundamental human rights are all too evident. The World Solidarity Forum wants to change that.

The World Solidarity Forum is a platform for organisations passionate about a better tomorrow, for which human rights are truly a universal concept, in reality and not just in theory. Our goal is to promote human rights and start debates about relevant current situations across the world.
Our main areas of focus are peace and security, intercultural communication, youth empowerment, anti-xenophobia and diversity, women’s rights, asylum seekers and refugees’ rights, and international conflict resolution.

Our Story

We were collaboratively founded by four organisations, namely, the European Youth for Human Rights, The Critique, Empasi and The Institute of Strategic Communication. The founding organisations believe that together we can accomplish more than alone. It is for this reason, and because we believe in  collaborative commons, that the WSF was founded to facilitate organisations working collaboratively and in partnership with one another, and to tackle together common challenges. All signatories are therefore committed to ensuring the full and successful implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Main Aims & Objectives

The World Solidarity Forum aims to facilitate the sharing of best practices, resources, contacts, and other information pertinent to peace building and human rights more broadly. We believe that effective action requires strong collaboration with shared objectives.

Our Beliefs

At the World Solidarity Forum, we believe in the respect for human rights and human dignity; in the necessity to foster debate and activism on current situations; and in the resolution of conflict through peacebuilding activities that bring lasting, sustainable peace to local communities around the world.

Our belief is that greater impact can be achieved if we all work together on three primary pillars:

  • By developing and implementing awareness campaigns.
  • Through advocacy campaigns aimed at both the private and public sector.
  • Through civil society activism, putting pressure on elected representatives to follow international law, and to protect constitutional rights.
