Justice and Peace Netherlands is a non-profit organisation based in The Hague that is dedicated to defending and promoting respect for human rights and social justice, worldwide and in the Netherlands.

Types of assistance offered by the organisation:

Temporary relocation

Target group: human rights defenders

Operates worldwide 

Justice and Peace  believes that the most effective way to promote universal human rights globally is through the support and protection of local and grassroots human rights defenders. Through Shelter City, and together with 14 Dutch and international cities,  human rights defenders at risk are offered with a three-month temporary stay in one of the Shelter Cities, so that they can continue their work safely and effectively in the long term. Generally, the Shelter City programme is open for applications twice a year, in May and November.
