What we do
To this end we are running public campaigns for policy change, lobbying governments and international bodies and taking cases to court.
Asylum & international protection
We work to create an informed and fact-based debate and to affirm the dignity and rights of refugees and migrants through projects such as Open Migration.
We focus on the inclusion of migrants and on the improvement of their conditions. We demand the approval of a new citizenship law and better access to healthcare services.
Equality and anti-discrimination
We want to overcome discrimination, exclusion and violence and support people who are discriminated against with public education, outreach and cultural initiatives.
We want the Italian government to decriminalize the use of drugs. Our platform for drug policy reform supports a non-ideological debate by offering information and analyses on drugs consumption and legal cases.
Civil liberties in the digital age
We defend freedom of expression and the right to privacy, and fight against mass surveillance. We ask for accountability on the export of technologies that might be used to violate human rights.
We aim to raise awareness and ignite a public debate while calling on Italy to comply with international law and human rights standards in counter-terrorism operations.
