The PILP aims to identify and address a wide range of human rights violations in the Netherlands. Our goal is to bring about lasting social and legal change in legislation, policy, and practice.

We have set out quite a task, and all help is more than welcome. Are you an expert on one of our files and would like to think along with or contribute to the PILP? Please contact us.


Application form for a potential case

As an expert human rights organisation or a concerned or aggrieved citizen, you can submit a potential case to the PILP. We will examine your application to assess whether it concerns a human rights violation we are capable of assisting with, and whether the public interest would be served by taking further action. Your case will be carefully considered and you will receive a reply as soon as possible.
