Humanity in Action The Netherlands is a Dutch non-profit organization, that aims to instill the values of human dignity and moral responsibility for the protection of the rights of minorities in a new generation of social, cultural and political leaders by:

  • Engaging student leaders in histories of resistance to institutionalized violations of minority rights in democratic countries;
  • Promoting the growth and development of young professionals dedicated to protecting human dignity and the rights of minorities;
  • Building a multi-national, intergenerational network of present and emerging leaders in diverse professional fields who share these commitments.

The organization's core business is its annual Fellowship Program, which takes place in June, lasts 4 weeks and is based in Amsterdam. Participants attend lectures, workshops and site visits that are all related to the organization's core mission. Every year, 10-12 Dutch, 10 American and 2 Bosnian students and/ or young professionals participate in the program. 

Humanity in Action The Netherlands also organizes year-round programs and events related to human rights and the rights of minorities for alumni and the general public. Furthermore, we develop education programs for professionals.
