HRD, Member
Andalus Institute for Tolerance and Anti-Violence Studies

El Hussieny Hassan is a journalist and a member of the Andalus Institute for Tolerance and Anti-Violence Studies, an organisation that promotes tolerance and rights-based approaches to resolving conflict. He also works as a journalist reporting human rights violations on the organisation's online radio programme, Horytna (Our Freedom).

A significant crackdown on civil society in Egypt has been taking place since 2014. HRDs face an extremely challenging situation due to restrictions imposed on civil society and peaceful public gatherings and protests, travel bans, the arrest and sentencing of HRDs, bloggers, journalists and protesters, as well as an ongoing smear campaign against human rights groups.
