About CLR

The Centre for Legal Resources (CLR) is a non-governmental, non-profit organization, established in 1998 by the Open Society Foundation, which actively advocates for the establishment and operation of a legal and institutional framework that safeguards the observance of human rights and equal opportunities, free access to fair justice and which contributes to the capitalization of its legal expertise for the general public interest.

CLR has been a focal point for FRA for many years and it holds ECOSOC status, reporting periodically to the UN and other international institutions.

In order to achieve this mission, the Centre for Legal Resources benefits from the support of a Steering Board and a professional team specialized in human rights and rule of law.
