Mission Statement

aditus foundation is a non-governmental organisation established in 2011 by a group of young lawyers. We believe in the universality, interdependence & indivisibility of all human rights, and our mission is to promote a society where all persons are able to access and enjoy all their fundamental human rights. Where this is not possible, access to justice and remedies should be provided.

Named for the Latin word meaning access, our work is focused on the attentive analysis of access to human rights recognition and enjoyment. In practical terms, we monitor, report and act on access to human rights by individuals and groups.

Our focus is primarily Malta, but we also work towards highlighting the regional & international dimensions of human rights in Malta.

aditus foundation is one of the winners of the 2014 Active Citizens of Europe (ACE) Awards - NGOs Category.

We are registered with the Malta Commissioner for Voluntary Organisations with number VO/0512.
