From 1993 till the beginning of 1998 the Center worked within the AntiWar Campaign Croatia under the name Group for Direct Protection of Human Rights. For almost five years the Group was one of the AWCC's projects. Due to a number of new activities the Group grew into an independent association of citizens in the beginning of 1998 - Center for Direct Protection of Human Rights.
The Center is based in Zagreb, but - according to the needs - the activist travel into the field to other parts of Croatia. As one of the founders of the Co-ordination of Organisations for Protection and Promotion of Human Rights in Croatia, the Center co-operates with other groups throughout Croatia solving concrete problems of human rights violations, organising public debates, press conferences and public campaigns.
