The main goal and mission

of the Helsinki Committee for Human Rights in Slovakia (HVS) is to raise awareness of human rights and the overall improvement of the human rights environment in Slovakia. We build on the legacy and values ​​of November 89, therefore we perceive the need to protect human rights, freedom and democracy as a main priority. For almost 30 years, we have been pointing out human rights violations and educating for democratic citizenship and tolerance. We believe that a necessary condition for a society that values ​​peace, justice and freedom is respect for human dignity. Our vision is to build a country where fundamental rights and freedoms are protected.
