Human rights should be the essential drivers of national policy in every nation in the world, and the Geneva Centre recognizes that increased awareness about the importance of human rights is the first and most important step one can take in this direction. The Centre collaborates with relevant actors to hold exhibitions and other cultural events and develops specific communications strategies aimed at raising awareness about human rights through communications and advocacy .

The noteworthy achievements of the Centre are the result of our intense efforts to develop an efficient network of collaboration, whose outcomes are essentially the corollary of our proactive institutional relations strategy. In this context, special consultative status with the UN could not have been conferred on the Centre without its enhanced academic authoritativeness and independence.
