About:

The Hukum, Hak Asasi dan Keadilan (HAK) Association was established in 1996 by a group of young Timorese and Indonesian activists. Its vision is a Timorese society which has prosperity, equality and no discrimination as to human rights, so that we may have everlasting peace. Its mission is to promote, protect and spread the principles of human rights throughout society and the state institutions of Timor-Leste.

Areas of work:

HAK’s role is realised through:
• Spreading information about the principles of human rights and their rule of law through various campaigns and education activities,
• Active participation to contribute to the strengthening of state institutions in order that they can carry out their roles carefully with respect to human rights, through monitoring and advocacy,
• Active contribution, according to capacity, to help resolving problems the State faces – problems inherited from the past as well as problems which appear because of an weak state system, and

• Building a popular movement to defend and fulfill human rights.
