It coordinates the implementation of the projects, organizes the exchange of information with and between the human rights actors, supporting the topical areas and partner institutions in operative concerns. The Secretariat also handles internal and external communication as well as administrative processes.

The Secretariat members include Director Jörg Künzli, Manager Evelyne Sturm and the collaborators Milena de Sá, Noah Keuzenkamp, Lukas Heim, Nadège Piller, and Claire Robinson.

The Secretariat is open Monday to Thursday.
