ALQST,is an independent non-governmental organisation that advocates for human rights. We monitor and document human rights violations that occur in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia at the hands of authority figures.
ALQST’s aim is to fight against violations that are carried out in countries by authority figures. By doing so, the value of human rights, dignity and fairness for all shall be reached.
We defend fundamental rights for all without any distinctions of race, sex, gender, colour, religion or language.
At present, we have two teams internationally.
The team inside of Saudi Arabia collects information and data on the ground, from all over the country. They communicate with our supporters inside of Saudi Arabia and conduct interviews with victims of violations, their families and other witnesses. Once they have collected the information, it is sent to our London team.
Our London team writes reports and news updates based on the information provided by the KSA team. They conduct research and studies to further human rights. They also research and write reports based on local, national and international news reports. They communicate with other NGO’s and our supporters at home as well as internationally.
Both teams monitor human rights violations and lobby against them using peaceful and legal methods.
ALQST conducts courses and seminars for the purpose of educating others about human rights and dignity. These courses and seminars are aimed at individuals of Saudi origin and also those who have a keen interest in the area. Details of upcoming courses and seminars shall be published on the News page.
*If you or someone you know is a victim of human rights violations by an authority figure, you can report your issue to us IN FULL CONFIDENCE through our ‘Abuse Claim Form’. We endeavour to assist you and your case within a timely manner. We will contact you through a method in which you prefer and at a time convenient to you. We strive to help protect those directly experiencing human rights abuses.
ALQST is currently working against human rights violations in Saudi Arabia and could extend the arena depending on future changes. ALQST has elected to concentrate its work in Saudi Arabia as there are, at present, no non-governmental organisations in Saudi Arabia.
It is ALQST’s policy that our team members in both teams shall stay anonymous at all times for their own security. ALQST shall only ever publish the name of our organisation’s Head and those required by law.
