aditus foundation is a non-governmental organisation established in 2011 with a mission to monitor, report and act on access to human rights in Malta. Named for the Latin word for 'access', our work is focused on the attentive analysis of access to human rights recognition and enjoyment.

Our work promotes a society where all persons are able to access and enjoy all their fundamental human rights, and access to justice and remedies should be provided in case of violations. Our focus is primarily Malta, but we also work towards highlighting the regional & international dimensions of human rights in Malta.

We are active members of the European Council on Refugees and Exiles, Platform for International Cooperation on Undocumented Migrants, European Network on Statelessness, International Detention Coalition.

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.
