SCORP – Human Rights and Peace
The starting point for the Working Group on Human Rights and Peace (SCORP – Standing Committee on Human Rights and Peace) has since 1983 been to highlight and improve the situation of refugees around the world. To be able to change things in the long term, and from the ground up is a big part of our work to promote the implementation of human rights, which together with conflict prevention is a prerequisite for our humanitarian efforts must mean something more than a short-term symptom relief.
We in Scorp want to work for a fairer and more cohesive society, against all forms of oppression, economic and social injustice, Racism and sexism - in Sweden and in the world. We want to be on the burning social commitment of many nursing students and utilize it to change the world!

" - Items 25.1, UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
