Human Rights: Anti Human Trafficking and Police Reforms

The increasing incidents of human rights violations in the country, including those by law enforcement agencies, prompted the Institute to address this field seriously. The Ford Foundation support for the programme on Law Enforcement and Good Governance signaled the entry of the ISS in the field in 1999. This support of the Foundation continued till 2006. Within this period a large number and variety of projects and training programmes were undertaken.

We are looking for sponsors to help us generate awareness and respect for human rights.
