The Human Rights Server
The Human Rights Server is in the process of re-organisation and re-orientation.
Although the International Human Rights Association has tried to make the
scope of the Human Rights Server wider than of our own politics the fate
of the Server has been connected to that of the IMRV. Since the end of
2001, the IMRV, its political leadership and its core work has been under
severe attack. This has also affected the Human Rights Server negatively.
During our difficulties, we have been touched and encouraged by the
overwhelming support that we have received from the main refugee organisations
in Germany, and their insistence that we continue and expand our work.
Further, the message from the refugees is that we should organisationally
and politically tighten ourselves, root our democratic structure more firmly
on the refugees and thus be less dependant on vacillating and uncommitted
Since the Human Rights Server is an important tool for the IMRV in our
work the developments in the IMRV will be reflected in it. We are re-building
our server starting with a limited number of countries but with a deeper
involvement of the refugees themselves and step by step widen our reach.
We hope very much that you are able to contribute positively to this process.

always glorify the hunter’. As the world is driving towards war it is important
to bring out the truth in our countries. The server gives voice to the
victims of war and oppression and it brings out the stories of courageous
resistance and the desire for peace with justice.

page. Finally we made it, despite the hugh work we had all the time. Now
the new design is online. We hope, that you will like it and that it will
make the whole site more clearly.
We have made the page easier and changed the navigation. All important
areas are reachable by using the menue on the left side. Furthermore the
multi-lingual system has been improved and now it is possible to change
the language on every single page (this function is not available in the
archive section). This can be done at the top of the page by using the

Where are the old pages?
All the old pages are still available in the archive and step by Step they
will be fitted into the new structure - so nothing gets lost. Also all
