The HRTF brings together seven contributors: Norway (initiator and founding contributor), Germany, the Netherlands, Finland, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and Luxembourg. The total of their contributions amounts to €18,972,096.54 to date.
The HRTF was set up in March 2008 to finance activities that support member states’ efforts in implementing the European Convention on Human Rights and other Council of Europe human rights instruments and contribute to strengthening the sustainability of the European Court of Human Rights. Since its creation, the HRTF has supported 31 projects.
