The center began working in August 1997 to promote public awareness of human rights issues in the region. It sponsors educational programs on civil rights, democracy, law, and public life and holds a weekly consulting session for citizens seeking advice on specific human rights cases. In its first six months, the center worked with over 500 citizens. It also publishes a bulletin, Pravozashitnik, on regional human rights issues, and works with the local media to publish and televise information about human rights. The center is run primarily by volunteers, including local lawyers who provide free legal consultation.
