The Lebanese Center for Human Rights (CLDH) is a local non-profit, non-partisan Lebanese human rights organization based in Beirut. CLDH was created in 2006 by the Franco-Lebanese Movement SOLIDA (Support for Lebanese Detained Arbitrarily), which has been active since 1996 in the struggle against arbitrary detention, enforced disappearance and the impunity of those perpetrating gross human rights violations.

CLDH monitors the human rights situation in Lebanon, fights enforced disappearance, impunity, arbitrary detention and racism and rehabilitates the victims of torture. CLDH regularly organizes press conferences, workshops and advocacy meetings on human rights issues in Lebanon and collects, records and documents human rights abuses in reports and press releases.

CLDH team on the ground supports initiatives aimed at determining the fate of all missing persons in Lebanon.

CLDH regularly follows up on numerous cases of arbitrary detention and torture in Lebanon in coordination with Lebanese and international organizations, and with the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention WGAD and the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture.

CLDH opened in 2007 a Rehabilitation Center for the victims of torture in Beirut, Centre Nassim, member of IRCT (International Rehabilitation Council for Torture victims), which provides multi-disciplinary professional support and case management for victims of torture and their families.

CLDH compiles a daily press review on human rights violations and on-going judiciary cases in Lebanon and updates several human rights blogs.

CLDH is a founding member of the Euro-Mediterranean Federation against Enforced Disappearance (FEMED), a member of the Euro-Mediterranean Network of Human Rights (REMDH), a member of the SOS Torture Network of the World Organization against Torture (OMCT), and a Founding Member of the Follow-Up Committee on Mass Graves, which advocates for the respect of international standards for exhumation practices.

إن ثورة الشعب التي نشهدها اليوم في معظم المناطق اللبنانية ما هي إلا نتيجة حتميّة تجاه السلطة السياسية الإقصائية، الفاسدة، غير الخاضعة للمساءلة، المتناحرة، والتابعة لقوى إقليمية ودولية مما أفقدها شرعيتها في تمثيل الشعب اللبناني. إن ثورة الشعب جاءت نتيجة تراكم سياسات اقتصادية واجتماعية غير عادلة وغير تضمينية وغير مستدامة مستخدمة لتسييس الهويّة ولتفكيك التضامن الاجتماعي وتهميش معظم شرائح المجتمع. هذه السياسات القائمة على رأسمالية المحاسيب واقتصاد الريع وإثارة العصبيات والتفريط بالصالح العام يستفيد منها أقليّة من أصحاب النفوذ الذين تتقاطع مصالحهم مع النظام الطائفي. هذا النظام الذي أدّى إلى أزمة تتضمّن كل عوامل الاستغلال وانتهاك الحقوق.
