One of the basic activities of the Center for Direct Protection of Human Rights is promoting its activities and informing the public with the human rights issues.

Therefore, at the end of 1995 we decided to establish Center's (at the time, it was called the Group for Direct Protection of Human Rights) bulletin called "Kroki".

The type of information published in the bulletin:
  1. the Center's activities - short texts, with emphasis on the most important problems and the ways of dealing with them;
  2. analysis of laws which are in the procedure, or already existing, with taking into account the protection of human rights and civic freedoms;
  3. critical texts - reactions to public events (politicians, persons, institutions...) which are (in)directly connected with the protection of human rights and nourishing the idea of civil society;
  4. the Centers's public statements;
  5. seminars, trainings and some of the contacts of the Center members.
It is important that all the texts are translated into English, and the bulletin is completely bilingual.

Who is "Kroki" distributed to?
