Observatory on the Universality of Rights (OURs) web platform launch

The Observatory on the Universality of Rights (OURs) is pleased to announce the launch of its web platform: oursplatform.org. The platform will be the go­to place for information and resources on safeguarding the universality of rights in international and regional human rights spaces.


A new collaborative project

Human rights are universal, indivisible, interdependent, and inalienable for every person in the world.

Yet, increasingly conservative actors are targeting the systems established to protect human rights for all. These actors use arguments based on anti­rights interpretations of religion, culture, tradition and state sovereignty to roll back our fundamental human rights — particularly women’s rights and gender justice— and to justify state impunity.

The Observatory on the Universality of Rights (OURs) is a new collaborative project that aims to monitor, analyze, and share information on anti­rights initiatives threatening international and regional human rights systems.

Grounded in a feminist framework, the OURs initiative works across regions, issues, and human rights spaces towards the advancement of social justice.

The project seeks to understand who is undermining the universality of human rights; why and how they seek to do it; and what can be done to secure equal human rights for all, including and especially rights related to gender and sexuality.
