The Munich Circle
The Munich Circle e.V. is a non-profit association founded by German-Iranians from Munich.
The association is politically neutral, non-denominational and free of ideologies. The founding members of The Munich Circle e.V. are advocates for freedom and human rights. Through their multifaceted work they aim to bring about positive change in the living conditions of the people in Iran, heighten public awareness of the human rights violations in Iran, and above all, reorientation of the German government’s policy on Iran. Furthermore, The Munich Circle supports refugees – especially Iranians who have lost their eyes or suffered eye injuries in the course of the “Woman-Life-Freedom” movement – and works to create structures that enable refugees arriving in Germany to be integrated into the host society as quickly and efficiently as possible.
