Bruno Kreisky Foundation

for Human Rights


KENNE DEINE RECHTE (Know Your Rights) was launched by the Human Rights Advisory Board of the City of Graz in 2010 as a project that set itself the goal of involving young people in order to raise and promote their interest in human rights. The participants (14 to 24 years) form an editorial team every year and publish their articles, interviews, videos or photo series on human-rights and socio-political issues on the platform The platform also offers basic information about human rights in the form of questions and answers. The ETC Graz, which is the business office of the Human Rights Advisory Board, provides organizational and content-related support. The project team members Mag.a Alexandra Stocker und David Weiss, MA consider it to be their task to act as enablers: “The young people do not lack in motivation or ideas. We provide the setting and offer them a mouthpiece to voice their concerns. More than 60 outstanding participants were trained as human-rights journalists in recent years. Together with us, they contribute towards raising awareness for human-rights issues.” At present, the projects for the tenth year are being prepared. Interested young people between the ages of 14 and 24 years can apply to join the editorial team 2019/20.
