The Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic appreciates the recognition of the activities carried out by the non-governmental sector in Slovakia as shown by the presentation of the Woman of Courage award of the U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, to Zuzana Števulová, Director of the Human Rights League.


A comprehensive approach to addressing the refugee crisis calls for involvement also of the non-governmental and private sectors with their specific mission in civic society.


In that regard MFEA SR emphasizes that the Human Rights League has financially supported a project for open dialogue on migration and integration of foreigners. SR simultaneously marks out the league’s ongoing readiness to take actions to prevent xenophobia and strengthen human rights and freedoms.
