We combine evidence-based human rights research with direct engagement in close collaboration with our partners to bring about human rights change for all.

We are a research and academic institution with offices, programmes, and convening power covering 40 countries.

The institute is named after Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat who saved tens of thousands of Jews and other people at risk in Hungary at the end of World War II.


To contribute to a wider understanding of, and respect for, human rights and international humanitarian law.


Just and inclusive societies with the effective realisation of human rights for all.

We apply a cross-cutting approach to gender equality so that the gender equality perspective is integrated into all of our work.

We achieve this through targeted activities, such as training courses focusing on gender equality, and through integrating gender equality considerations into all of our work even when the primary objective is something else.
