Within the international field of human rights the BIM plays a significant role. In its cooperation with the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) it contributes essentially to the image of Vienna as a city of strong recognition for its human right profile throughout Europe.
For the Netherlands' Institute of Human Rights (SIM) at Utrecht University the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights is a source of academic inspiration and an excellent partner-institution.
In order to ensure a higher level of Human Rights protection in Europe we need knowledge from different disciplines, we need experience from all continents and we need a creative outlook. BIM combines all this in a unique manner relevant for the everyday life of people. This is why BIM has been second to none in the Human Rights field for many years.
The Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights is the most important Austrian think tank in the field of fundamental rights.
The academic study of human rights is of great social relevance. The Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights, as the major Austrian institute of human rights, contributes strongly to the objectives of the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft whose mission statement is “Science for the People”.
The value of being associated with the Institute, over the years, has been its all inclusive and diverse approach to human rights. This is the Institute’s undoubted strength. I am very proud to be a friend to the Institute.
The Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights (BIM) – one of the most significant partners in the realisation process of equal treatment, a fundamental right, in Austria.
The BIM is known for its reliability in all areas of human rights: in the field of research as well as in the field of NGO. The BIM is the voice of human rights in Austria.
The exhausting coming to terms with the Bosnian drama would have been absolutely impossible without the pioneer work of the BIM in the first half of the 1990’s. The Institute combines upmost professional standards and an admirable commitment for all aspects of human rights.
