Human Rights


People often think that human rights violations occur only in far-away lands and in foreign cultures. However, in addition to the right to life, and the prohibitions on slavery and forced labour, human rights include the prohibition on torture, the right to freedom and security, the right to a fair trial, and the right to respect for private and family life - to name but a few. Even in Austria, a policeman could set his dog on you or take his truncheon to you. We stand ready to help you win justice. We can lodge complaints against human rights violations with the Constitutional and Administrative Court of Appeal, as well as the European Commission for Human Rights and the European Court of Justice for Human Rights. We can fight for your right to freedom of expression, information, assembly and speech.
