Charities 2017


Justice and Peace Netherlands


Justice and Peace

This year, MUNISH is partnering with Justice and Peace Netherlands as the 2017 MUNISH Charity. Justice and Peace is a grassroots non-governmental organization based in The Hague that works to support Human Rights Defenders (HRDs) worldwide and to strengthen local solidarity with refugees and asylum seekers within the Netherlands. Their vision and movement is driven by the idea that anyone can be a change maker, regardless of scale and irrespective of religion, ethnicity, political opinion, gender, sexual orientation or marital status. For Justice and Peace, we are all human rights defenders.

The MUNISH 2017 theme, ‘Peace, Justice and Inclusive Societies’, corresponds closely with the work of the organization. Through the Shelter City Temporary Relocation Programme, Justice and Peace contributes to more peaceful societies by protecting human rights. HRDs are temporarily relocated to safe havens throughout the Netherlands and internationally to gain new knowledge, re-energize, and to expand their network away from danger. HRDs are vital to ensuring sustainable peace and to protecting local human rights, which is why their protection is of upmost importance to Justice and Peace.

Inclusive Societies is also at the heart of Justice and Peace, through their Welkom Hier and Haagse Huiskamer. Justice and Peace’s Migration Programme is committed to ensuring and advocating for the fair treatment and protection of asylum seekers, refugees and irregular migrants, working at all levels from strengthening local capacities to informing and influencing national and European policies. Through the new launch of Haagse Huiskamer, Justice and Peace facilitates a creative platform for local initiatives in The Hague to work with refugees to create a city in which all inhabitants feel at home.
