HumanRights360 is a member of the European Union Transparency Registry since 31.7.2018, Identification Number: 202382032206-34
The EU Transparency Registry has been set up so that citizens can, and even must, expect the EU decision-making process to be as transparent and open as possible in order to allow proper control and accountability of the Union institutions. The more open this process, the easier it is to ensure balanced representation and avoid unreasonable pressures and illegal or privileged access to information or decision makers. Transparency also plays a key role in encouraging European citizens to participate more actively in the democratic life of the EU.
The Transparency Registry was created to answer key questions, including what interests are sought, by whom and with what budget. The European Parliament and the European Commission are jointly responsible for the operation of the system.
Racist Violence Recording Network
The initiative for the establishment of the Racist Violence Recording Network was taken in mid-2011 by the Greek National Commission for Human Rights (GNCHR) and the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees in Greece (UNHCR) on the basis of two major findings: a) the identified absence of an official and effective data collection system on racist violence and b) the need to coordinate organisations which recorded, on their own initiative, incidents of racist violence against people who sought their services. Ever since October 2011, when the RVRN began effective operation, its scope of activity has been constantly growing.
The RVRN is comprised of actors offering medical, social and legal services or/and coming in direct contact with victims of racist violence or victims of other hate- or bias-motivated violent attacks as well as organizations established by the groups which are usually targeted by racist violence themselves. To join the RVRN a necessary precondition is respect for human rights, diversity, multiculturalism, and freedom of religion as well as action in tackling discrimination and intolerance. Apart from the coordinators, the UNHCR and the GNCHR, the RVRN is comprised of 42 Non-Governmental Organisations and civil society actors, as well as the Greek Ombudsman and the Migrants’ Integration Council of the Municipality of Athens, as observers.
International Detention Coalition (IDC)
The International Detention Coalition (IDC) is a unique global network of over 400 civil society organisations and individuals in almost 90 countries, that advocate for, research and provide direct services to refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants affected by immigration detention.
Network for the Rights of Children on the Move
The “Network for the Rights of Children on the Move” is an informal network operating under the initiation and coordination of the Greek Deputy Ombudsman for Children Rights. Its operation started in January 2017 and its main objectives are a) to support the monitoring of the situation of children on the move across Greece, and b) to promote evidence – based advocacy actions on issues of shared concern related to children.
