Iran Human Rights

Iran Human Rights (IHR) is a non-profit, human rights organization with members inside and outside Iran. It is a non partisan and politically independent organization with its base in Oslo, Norway.

IHR has active and supporting members in Iran, USA, Canada, Japan and several European countries. The organization started as a network of Iranian and non-Iranian human rights defenders in 2005. It was registered in Norway as an international in 2009.

Reporting about the death penalty in Iran has our main focus. IHR’s aim has been to create an abolitionist movement in Iran by increasing awareness about the death penalty. In recent years the number of executions in Iran has been rising and there are now a growing number of human rights defenders, groups and even political organizations giving attention to the death penalty.

In 2009, IHR became a member of the World Coalition against Death Penalty (WCADP) and is one of the twenty elected members of its steering committee.

Besides the death penalty IHR aims at monitoring other human rights issues such as rights of the ethnic and religious minorities, women, children, human rights defenders and environment in the future. In order to improve, we depend on your news, criticism and advice. You can also contribute to our work by becoming a member in IHR or by donations.
