About The Rights Practice

Since its establishment in 2002, The Rights Practice has worked to advance the respect and protection of human rights in practice. We are dedicated to working in environments where human rights are most at risk. Currently our work is focused on promoting human rights and public participation in China.

We believe local civil society has a valuable role to play in holding governments to account and can help to challenge the indifference and ignorance in which human rights violations take place. The Rights Practice works with local partners in NGOs, universities, research institutes and among lawyers. We are committed to helping partners develop sustainable and locally owned solutions to enhancing the protection of all human rights.

We have a small professional staff based in London, Beijing and Madison (WI) and a growing network of experts who work with us as consultants or advisors on specific projects.

The Rights Practice is a registered charity (1133616) and a company limited by guarantee (England & Wales) number 04365047. In 2008 we incorporated as a US charity in the State of New York and Wisconsin.
