International Commission for Dalit Rights is an independent and impartial international Dalit rights advocacy, networking and development organization. We dedicate to promoting the rights and justice of nearly 300 million world’s most marginalized groups known as OutCastes. The ICDR provides technical assistance and collaborates with international community and government agencies in caste-affected countries. ICDR has been an instrumental organization to intervene in the UN mechanisms, conferences and UN intergovernmental negotiations on the issue of exclusion and inequality based on descent or caste for the post-2015 development agenda: Sustainable Development Goals. The ICDR works in solidarity with other global justice movements to integrate OutCastes rights into human rights, racial justice, and economic justice dialogues.
