Who Runs the Festival?
The Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law . We started the festival in 2016.
And we run the Swedish Human Rights Film Festival with Kino/Folkets Bio.
The Raoul Wallenberg Institute
We combine human rights research with direct engagement.
Why? Because we want more people to understand and respect human rights.
First of all, the institute is named after Raoul Wallenberg. He was a Swedish diplomat. Most noteworthy, he worked in Hungary at the end of World War II. And Wallenberg saved tens of thousands of Jews and others at risk.
Furthermore, the institute has been affiliated with Lund University for decades. And today, we are around 75 people.
In addition, we have presences in six countries outside of Sweden. So we sit in Amman, Beijing, Istanbul, Jakarta, Nairobi, and Phnom Penh.
