Accountability for gross human rights violations
HRN seeks accountability for gross violations of international human rights and humanitarian law, such as war crimes and crimes against humanity. We work to end impunity for grave violations of human rights based on the firm belief that achieving justice and accountability could prevent a recurrence of such violations and lay a foundation for long-lasting peace.
In particular, understanding that the status quo often fails to seek accountability for violations by strong states, HRN demands justice and accountability for crimes perpetrated by the strongest states. In this respect, HRN focuses on human rights violations committed in the course of the Global War on Terror and violations committed in occupied Palestinian territories.
At the same time, HRN works to end impunity and support transitional justice processes in various Asian countries.
