Human Rights - Azerbaijan

Human Rights

Human rights are rights that apply worldwide, to all people, in all places, at all times. They are the foundations of a democracy in which every person counts. The Netherlands strives to protect and promote human rights all over the world.

In Azerbaijan we focus on gender equality, and strive to promote equal rights for women and girls, as well as for LGBTIQ+'s.
