FOUNDATION FOR HUMAN RIGHTS AND DEMOCRACY
“The moment of Truth for a lawyer occurs whenever a client (a community or individual suffering injustices and exploitation) tells a story that seems morally compelling but legally hopeless. That is where the attorney’s legal research should begin, not where it ends. Too many injustices persist in the world because tired legal thinking has accepted unjust patterns as legally inevitable”. – ANTHONY D’AMAT-
“Democracy must be built through open societies that share information. When there is information, there is enlightenment. When there is debate, there is solution. When there is no sharing of power, there is no rule of law, no accountability, there is abuse, corruption, subjugation and indignation”. – ATIFETE JAHJAGA-
“True peace is not the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice” “Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love. – DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR-
