RightsInfo builds knowledge of and support for human rights

RightsInfo builds knowledge and support for human rights in the UK by producing engaging, accessible and beautifully-presented online human rights content. In two years, we have created a new digital media space for human rights, featuring award-winning infographics, storiesvideos and explainers. Our work now reaches over a million people every week.

Human rights protect us against injustice. They make our society fairer and more equal. But the human rights system remains fragile. Understanding of and support for human rights in the UK is low. RightsInfo’s mission is to change that.

Our story

RightsInfo was founded by lawyer Adam Wagner, who also set up the acclaimed UK Human Rights Blog. The brand and creative model was developed with Founding Creative Director Yoav Segal. We launched on 21 April 2015 and became a charity in May 2016 (Charity No. 1167370).

In 2017 we grew to a full-time staff of eight. We have a fantastic team of volunteers and employees who you can read about by clicking the tab above.

We have won a UK Blog Award, the Plain English Communicator Award and a Smart Screen Creative Award. We’ve also been officially selected for the Oscars of the animation world, the 2017 Annecy International Animation Festival and were shortlisted for the 2017 D&AD Impact Awards.
