Iuridicum Remedium (IuRe) is a Czech non-profit organization founded more than twenty years ago.
IuRe implements the Legal Aid programme, in which we provide counselling to people with social problems related to debt, housing or work.
In the Digital Freedoms programme, we address issues of data abuse, privacy, or biometric identification. In recent years, our big theme has been digital exclusion and the right to analogue.
