International Network of Civil Liberties Organizations

Liberty is a member of INCLO (the International Network of Civil Liberties Organizations).

INCLO is made up of 15 human rights organisations from around the world. Together they aim to bring new perspectives and strategies to defeat dangerous and divisive politics and empower people to build better societies where everyone is treated with dignity and fairness.

Each organisation is completely independent of their respective national government, meaning they are uniquely placed to challenge unjust policies in parliaments, courtrooms, the press, and in the streets.

Of course the situation is different in each country, and INCLO members don’t work together on every issue. There are currently four areas of work where member organisations share knowledge, skills and resources: protest and policing, privacy and surveillance, religious freedom, and protecting civic space.

INCLO’s 15 members are:

  • Agora International Human Rights Group (Russia)
  • American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU, United States)
  • Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI, Israel)
  • Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA, Canada)
  • Centro de Estudios Legales y Sociales (CELS, Argentina)
  • Dejusticia (Colombia)
  • Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights (EIPR, Egypt)
  • Human Rights Law Network (HRLN, India)
  • Hungarian Civil Liberties Union (HCLU, Hungary)
  • Human Rights Law Centre (HRLC, Australia)
  • Irish Council for Civil Liberties (ICCL, Ireland)
  • Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC, Kenya)
  • KontraS (Indonesia)
