The Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights (BIM) – together with the LBG 'Open Innovation in Science Centre’  – has launched a crowdfunding campaign to establish the Atlas of Torture - a website to advance together the global fight against torture and ill-treatment.

In order to be successful, we need your support! In 30 days we need to raise at least 50,000 EUR in order to establish a global cooperation platform aimed at raising awareness, collecting information and empowering people worldwide.

Dignity at Trial

DIGNITY at TRIAL: Enhancing procedural safeguards for suspects with intellectual and psychosocial disabilities

On the 25th of June the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights will hold the international conference “Dignity at Trial”. The background of the event is a two year research project on enhancing the procedural rights of suspects and accused with intellectual and/or psychosocial disabilities. The conference aims at outlining the way forward and defining the next steps. It will give the floor to the project partners, high level national and international experts as well as political actors.

The results and recommendations of the project are compiled in the Handbook "Dignity at Trial". The Handbook is available for download.

The Straniak Academy for Democracy and Human Rights is a two week summer school, which is organised by the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights - Research Association (BIM-FV) since 2013. The aim of the Academy is to promote academic education in the fields of democracy, human rights and the rule of law by connecting the main theoretical concepts with practical experience of experts by using an interdisciplinary and interactive format. This year, the Academy will take place from 2 to 15 September 2018 in Saranda, Albania.

The 2018 draft proposed to amend the Austrian asylum and migration law aims to "prevent asylum abuse" and to "increase the efficiency of asylum and immigration law procedures". The proposal seems to assume that asylum-seekers are generally badly intentioned. These generalizations are used to legitimize measures that intervene in human rights of individuals and that reinforce the already existing special status of asylum law. The Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights therefore addresses critical aspects of the proposal.

Please see German version. The event will be held in German language.
