    Goals / Remit

    Droit au Droit – Right to Law is an international non-profit and non-governmental organisation, founded in 2004 under Belgian law and based in Brussels, whose aim is to foster the protection and promotion of human rights, democracy and rule of law in the practical implementation of legal practice.
    DAD objectives are to provide an enhanced institutional and policy capacity for a successful European integration process, especially in the area of justice and home affairs; to promote, support and monitor institutional reform to improve the transparency, fairness, accountability and efficiency of judicial systems by strengthening the rule of law and advancing human rights for all. Our aim is to foster policy development through interdisciplinary dialogue and partnership between public institutions, academia and social actors on key issues that will shape the future legal landscape.
