2010 - Now

YIHR was formed in 2003  in order to enhance youth participation in the democratisation of the society and empowerment of the rule of law through the process of facing the past and establishing new, progressive connections in the post-conflict region of the former Yugoslavia

The mission of YIHR is to protect the victims of human rights violations, establish new connections in the region among the post-war generations, and include the young in the process of transitional justice through promoting the truth about the wars in former Yugoslavia.

The Youth Initiative for Human Rights promotes truth, justice, responsibility and equality as basic values. The organisation has offices in Belgrade, Prishtina, Podgorica, Zagreb, and Sarajevo.
