Our activities are carried out within the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development of the United Nations Organization (UN), the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the Equator Principles and international recommendations.

Haizur is the consequence of having worked for several years on human rights and equal opportunities between women and men, from government and civil society organizations and in constant relationship with international companies. We believe that sustainable development and human rights are an appropriate meeting point for governments, society and companies to have a space for rapprochement and discussion, with the aim of reaching agreements and fostering development that respects the dignity of people.

We are a interdisciplinary team formed in different branches of social and human sciences: anthropology, law, economics, sociology, geography, psychology and philosophy. Our academic training, in addition to the years of experience in the topics we address, leads us to understand reality through the different layers of its epidermis; we build tools to be fair and make the world habitable for all the people who inhabit it, taking into account the context and interests of each one.
