Since our incorporation as an organisation, LFJL has consistently sought to defend and promote the human rights of everyone in Libya. As we work in an environment that rapidly evolves on a daily basis; we implement strategic, innovative, and flexible activities that seek opportunities to create long-term impacts. In this way we continue to be able to make differences that are life changing for many individuals and benefit Libyan society as a whole.
Our activities are also designed to be holistic, each complementing the outputs of another, to result in harmonised outputs and impacts. This ensures we make use of resources efficiently and are able to achieve substantial results, well beyond what is anticipated of an organisation of our size. We seek to frequently include opportunities for collaboration, experience sharing and capacity building in our activities, as we strongly believe that the joint efforts of civil society organisations are necessary to ensure Libya’s transition is ultimately successful.
The Research and Capacity Building Programme undertakes activities that aim to identify new opportunities for participation, to share our understanding of human rights issues and to address the knowledge deficit around Libya.
The Advocacy and Outreach Programme ensures that core human rights concerns of grassroots stakeholders are a key consideration during the decision making processes of domestic, regional and international institutions and actors.
On 21 March, the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) issued a resolution on Libya that once again failed to recognise the essential need to put an end to the ongoing human rights violations in the country.
