Thank you! Without your commitment to promote human rights, FIDH could not carry out its missions in 117 countries through its 192 member organisations.
Sida partners with FIDH in the global fight for human rights, democracy and rule of law. Supporting capacity and protection of human rights defenders, contributing to accountability for human rights violations, strengthening international, regional and national human rights mechanisms and standards are areas which we see as important as ever.
Sida believes that FIDH, as a federation with 192 members in 117 countries, plays a critical role in supporting the human rights movement and linking organisations to networks and sharing experiences. With the negative trends and the questioning of human rights and democracy that we see in the world today, Sida believes that an important strength of FIDH is its capacity to gather so many actors working for the implementation of human rights and the furthering of democracy and the rule of law.
The Oak Foundation’s International Human Rights Programme has supported FIDH for over 10 years. We congratulate you on achieving this centenary milestone. We value the diversity of your membership and global reach.

The European Commission
The European Commission sees FIDH as a key proponent of the human rights movement, rooted in Europe with a global outlook, and we look forward to many more years of partnership based on the values that we hold in common.
With its unique global umbrella network of civil society organisations and expertise, FIDH has been carrying out important independent work on human rights: building the capacity, advocacy, and monitoring activities of grassroots human rights organisations around the world; promoting human rights compliance and the fight against impunity; and supporting shared international development objectives anchored in human rights activities.

For nearly 30 years, the Fondation de France has supported the structuring, development, and networking of civil society actors committed to the defence of all rights at the international level by providing specific assistance to network heads and coalitions.
Because of the Federation’s size, its longevity, and the tireless commitment of its entire network, the Fondation de France considers FIDH to be a key player in the defence of human rights. The celebration of its centenary will enable it to face the challenges of the next century with ambition, strength, and agility.
City of Paris
In Paris, in 1789 and again in 1948, people gathered to establish human rights as universal principles. Building on this legacy, the City of Paris is committed to defending the fundamental rights of all. Paris is a city of refuge for those fleeing the atrocities of war, repression, and attacks on their freedoms. It supports NGOs and human rights defenders, activists, lawyers, journalists, and artists whose work to investigate and denounce injustice and fight impunity is essential. They find, in Paris, much-needed support and assistance.
Paris has a common commitment to these struggles with FIDH, which since its founding in 1922 has partnered with human rights defenders throughout the world, fighting for the respect of the rule of law and the promotion of humanist values. The City of Paris is proud to have supported FIDH for many years and is deeply honoured to take part in its centenary: an opportunity to celebrate those who are committed to human rights and contemplate together the rights of the future.
City of Brussels
The city of Brussels, city of light for human rights, strongly supports the centenary of the FIDH through joint events to be held throughout the fall of 2022.
FIDH is a major actor both locally anchored through its 192 member organisations and globally since it acts with the major international bodies for the protection of human rights.

Rumeur Publique Agency
In the current context, made up of crises (health, military, technological, social, or economic…), the protection and promotion of human rights has never been so important.

Magnum Photo agency
Magnum Photos is closely linked to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted in 1948 by the United Nations.
Written between 1946 and 1948, that is to say at the very time of Magnum’s creation, this charter proclaims exactly the same values of freedom, equality and dignity as those defended by the agency’s photographers. It is not uncommon to find the terms of the Universal Declaration in the various texts written by the photographers of the time.
Supporting FIDH is a natural continuation of our convictions.
Mobile Film Festival
“One minute can change the world” is our credo at the Mobile Film Festival.
For 18 years, we have run this festival around a unique format – 1 cell phone, 1 minute, 1 film – on topics concerning the Sustainable Development Goals.
Our mission is to discover, showcase, and support tomorrow’s film talent through impactful films. In partnership with the United Nations since 2015, we propose each year to directors from all over the world to make films on socially conscious themes.
In 2018, we held the Stand Up for Human Rights edition in the context of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It seemed natural to us to collaborate and support the centenary of FIDH this year.Happy birthday. We will be by your side for the next 100 years.
