CSW is a Christian human rights organisation advocating for freedom of religion or belief around the world. The right to freedom of religion or belief is also known as the ‘first freedom’ given to humanity by God. It’s a touchstone human right, often serving as a ‘litmus test’ for whether other rights are at risk of being abused. It’s a right we must protect, defend and restore.
CSW seeks to challenge and change the laws, behaviours and policies which lead to abuses of the right to freedom of religion and belief and we have over three decades of experience advocating for freedom of religion or belief around the world.
CSW’s team of specialist advocates work on over 20 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, to ensure that the right to freedom of religion or belief is upheld and protected.
Our vision is a world free from religious persecution, where everyone can practice a religion or belief of their choice.
