The mission of the coalition
The Ukrainian authorities must recognize the important and legitimate role of human rights defenders and activists working in the defense of public interests, not hinder, but on the contrary - facilitate their activities, and effectively investigate all cases of threats, attacks, intimidation, repression or any other type of persecution.
"Coalition for the protection of civil society" is a non-political association and operates on the basis of respect for human rights, non-violence and non-discrimination.
Our coalition is becoming stronger with the addition of each new GO.
The Coalition's Goal
The active participation of individuals, groups, organizations and institutions for the protection of human rights, the fight against corruption and advocacy of public interests is crucial, because civil society, among other things, helps states to fully comply with their obligations in the field of human rights and fundamental freedoms, overcome corruption, as well as upholding the principles of democracy and the rule of law.
