THOUGHT LEADERSHIP

Paradigm of Transformative Change lies at the core of EPF‚Äôs Human Rights Program: EPF works on changing the structural causes of intolerance, violence and discrimination, as well as the attitudes and behavior of actors. Critical thinking methodology ‚Äď deconstructing stereotypes, opening up tabooed discussions, changing imposed narratives and perceptions, challenging the notion of ‚Äėthe other‚Äô ‚Äď is a key to addressing issues of minority rights, non-discrimination and freedom of expression, areas which are at the foundation of EPF‚Äôs Human Rights programming.

Thinking and conceptualizing behind each project is based on EPF’s conviction that contextual, cultural and political drivers of Human Rights violations should be addressed in the first place. Thoughtful study of a problem, close cooperation with all counterparts and beneficiaries, looking for out-of-box solutions are some of the instruments EPF applies while designing and implementing projects. Since EPF is a think and do tank, it works full circle from research to policy advice and implementation.
