Religious Freedom Roundtable in Ukraine is organized on a partnership basis by the Institute for Religious Freedom and the Center for Civil Liberties, which in communication with other participants provide planning and organization of events, facilitation of dialogue, media and advocacy activities with the aim of achieving practical results.
Institute for Religious Freedom (IRF) is an NGO defending human rights, founded in 2001 in Kyiv, Ukraine. The IRF’s main goal is to protect and promote religious freedom and other related human rights, facilitate inter-faith cooperation and a church-state dialogue, and strengthen democratic foundations and civil society in Ukraine.
Center for Civil Liberties (CCL) was founded in 2007 to promote the values of human rights. We conduct educational activities. We are introducing reforms in the rule of law and democracy. We monitor political persecution in the Crimea and the Donbas region. We unite the leading human rights organizations of Ukraine. We develop the practice of public control over the actions of the authorities, law enforcement officers and judges.
The constituent meeting and the developing of the Roundtable’s website become possible through the support of Union of Councils for Jews in the Former Soviet Union (UCSJ).
