 About us

Human European Consultancy specialises in complex, international projects in the fields of human rights, equal treatment and non-discrimination. Our projects include capacity-building, awareness-raising, programme and project evaluation, assessing the impact of policies and interventions, and multi-country research resulting in national, comparative and synthesis reports.

We believe that involving different stakeholders in the development and implementation of a programme or project adds value to both the analysis and the solutions. Our experience over the years has shown that this approach makes project outcomes more relevant, effective, efficient and sustainable and lays the foundations for the change set in motion by the projects.

A key aspect of our work is collaboration with different partners and teams of national and international experts specialising in the topic covered by each project. This ensures the highest level of professionalism and expertise in specific policy areas.

In addition to training civil society organisations in all the EU countries in awareness-raising around non-discrimination and equality issues, we work at a number of different levels on policy and legislation, as well as on activities with and for national and international NGOs. We also work to help people in society to realise their rights and are involved at the grassroots level through capacity-building and training activities.

With over 20 years of successfully completed projects for the European Commission, the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights, the Council of Europe and the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, as well as national governments and national donor agencies, Human European Consultancy is actively contributing to a society where human rights are better protected.
