Advancing Human Rights Research

HRFN’s Advancing Human Rights research is the first-ever analysis of the evolving state of global human rights philanthropy. This initiative is a collaboration between HRFN and Candid, in partnership with Ariadne and Prospera, to map the field by collecting and analyzing grants data. The goal is to help human rights funders and advocates make more informed decisions, discover opportunities for collaboration, and work more effectively.


We produce these tools to make the findings accessible:
