Multicultural Dialogue

Digital Platform of Human Rights and Communication.

Rut Foundation in collaboration with IZI Lab is currently creating the first digital platform for Human Rights and Communication, a global network of people and associations – but also the physical and digital places to which they are connected – who intend to collaborate in order to give visibility to cases and local contexts linked to human rights violations against individuals and communities, as well as to good human rights defense practices spread globally.

For the creation of the Digital Platform for Human Rights, Rut Foundation adopts the Strategic Foresight methodology for the definition of the functions that will intervene, around the theme of exile, to a reconfiguration of the concept of human rights already expanded and redefined with the UN Agenda 2030. In particular, through the Strategic Foresight tool, a quantitative approach is proposed, statistical and qualitative also through a ranking of the countries at greatest risk for the violation of human rights.

  • Sub-Saharan Africa: anthropological research on the socio-cultural dynamics that define the institutional and humanitarian responses to gender violence in French-speaking West Africa in order to build an archive of memories and testimonies also in relation to migratory movements.
