CSW is a Christian organisation working for religious freedom through advocacy and human rights, in the pursuit of justice.
Our primary work is advocacy, which we use to influence the legislation, policies, attitudes and behaviours which reinforce religious discrimination and persecution. Through this, we aim to bring about lasting cultural, social and political change.
CSW's evidence-based reports are widely used and cited by the Foreign Office, US State Department, US Commission on International Religious Freedom, UN and others on a regular basis. We regularly brief officials from the European Council, the European Commission, current and future EU presidencies, MEPs, and NGOs on the situations in all our key countries of focus.
Here are a few highlights:
- We met Colombia's President, and told him the worrying truth about religious persecution in his country. We presented our findings and recommendations which were taken seriously.
- CSW saw a breakthrough in our Burma work when fourteen governments supported recommendations for a UN Commission of Inquiry.
- Our unique analysis of Nepal’s draft constitution was used to brief politicians to ensure that it enshrines religious freedom.
- Providing evidence-based reports to the UN human rights reviews of some of the world’s worst abusers of religious freedom.
CSW also aims to mobilise the general public to pray, protest and provide on behalf of persecuted Christians. By doing so, we provide solidarity and support to those in need.
