Moldovan Institute for Human Rights

description of organisation

Moldovan Institute for Human Rights (IDOM) is an independent, non-profit organization founded in 2007 by a group of lawyers and defenders of human rights. The members of IDOM are experienced in monitoring the respect for human rights and the honoring of obligations which the Republic of Moldova accepted before the OSCE, the United Nations and the Council of Europe.
The major aim of IDOM is to contribute to the education, promotion and defense of rights and liberties guaranteed by national and international legislation. The advocacy and litigation done by IDOM benefits not only certain specific groups, but the whole society. IDOM is concerned with the strongest violations of human rights, provoked by the ignorance of superior values such as individual liberty, social justice and equality and non-discrimination.
IDOM activities:
• Monitoring of diverse state institutions in order to track and practically eliminate the abuse of human rights;
• Judicial consultation on Human rights issues;
• Analysis of the legal framework;
• Strategic litigation (at national and international instance – European Court of Human Rights, UN Committees and others);
• Public Policy Analysis;
• Human Rights Education;
• Lobby;
In the team of IDOM we have professional lawyers and social workers. We also have a person appointed that is responsible for volunteer’s network of IDOM: national and international volunteers, This person introduces volunteers to institute’s work and activities, together with volunteers makes the activities plans and working schedules. Every project of IDOM has its own coordinator. Volunteer’s coordinator and project coordinators collaborate and assist volunteers in implementation of both daily office activities and special projects’ activities.
