Centrum för rättvisa (Centre for Justice) supports the rights of individuals through litigation and by participating in the public debate on human rights.
Centrum för rättvisa is an independent non-profit organisation whose mission consists in guarding individuals’ human rights and freedoms. Since its foundation in 2002, Centrum för rättvisa has gradually established itself as the leading organisation in this field. It is in fact the first non-profit public interest law firm in Sweden.
The core idea of Centrum för rättvisa is that the respect for individual human rights and freedoms is the foundation of a democratic state based on the rule of law and of any well-functioning society. We support individuals by litigating cases of principle and by participating in the public debate. We act independently from political parties or other interest groups. We never charge the people we assist.
We work with human rights and freedoms as protected in the Swedish Constitution, Swedish legislation, the European Convention on Human Rights and the Law of the European Union.
