Mission and Vision


ILRAJ aims to understand, explore, evaluate, shape policy, advance practice and strengthen the rule of law and accountability in order to make the promotion of and respect for human rights a part of our culture.

The ILRAJ aims to address inequalities and protect, promote and entrench human rights, its values and freedoms through the provision of training, education, dissemination of information, litigation, pro bono legal counsel, research, internship, activism and advocacy. It also seeks to empower women, youths and the vulnerable, disadvantaged and marginalized by emphasizing on participation, non-discrimination, empowerment and respect for human rights.

ILRAJ believes in the universality and inalienability of human rights, the indivisibility, interdependence and interrelatedness of these rights, and the basic premise of equality over discrimination.


ILRAJ envisages a society in which all people are aware of and enjoy their universally recognized human rights and fundamental freedoms and have access to and are able to seek redress if these rights and freedoms are abused or violated.
