International Dalit Solidarity Network: The International Dalit Solidarity Network – IDSN – works on a global level for the elimination of caste discrimination and similar forms of discrimination based on work and descent. It links grassroot priorities with international mechanisms and institutions in order to change policies and practices that lead to caste discrimination. Through engagement with the UN, EU and other multilateral institutions, IDSN has had a significant impact on the internationalisation of caste discrimination as a critical human rights issue. The network produces crucial input in the form of documentation, strategic interventions and lobby action and also supports lobby activities on a national level.
