CVEK is an independent non-governmental organisation that strives to contribute to building a more just and cohesive society through research, analytical and educational activities. The Centre was founded in 2005 and is based in Bratislava. Our common mission is to make a systematic effort aimed at creating an environment in which every person has every right to feel like a valuable and respected human being. Our work is rooted in defending fundamental human rights principles such as respecting dignity of every person and promoting diversity of society.

The activities of CVEK focus particularly on ethnic, language and religious minorities. We specialise in promoting inclusion of marginalised population groups, be it the Roma, migrants or other minorities. Thematically, we place emphasis especially on education, housing, social status, interethnic relations and political participation.
