Our advocacy builds on the insights generated by our work with STATELESS persons and VULNERABLE communities in semi-urban and rural areas. We know that we can only sustain the impact of our programs, and take that impact to scale, by challenging governments and institutions with power and resources to change their policies and practice.
We influence governments, international institutions and the private sector to help realize affected persons rights and ensure that their voices are heard and respected.
DHRRA works to establish international, regional and national level advocacy through its multidimensional approach towards reducing and ending statelessness
Following are the mechanisms of advocacy engaged by DHRRA:
Advocate for changes in policy and legislation with policy makers
Encourage and organize self-Advocacy- where the affected individuals or a group of individuals speak up for themselves
Defend and safeguard affected individuals’ rights through pro bono litigation & strategic litigation
Contribution to human rights reports (UPR, CRC, CEDAW) based on the advocacy status at country level
Collaboration and information sharing between state & civil society actors to create opportunities for collective action
