Adrian Pereira

Institute:   North South Initiative

Brief Profile:   Adrian Pereira is the Executive Director of North-South Initiative (NSI), a Human Rights and Social Justice orientated organization based in Malaysia which he co-founded. NSI’s mission is to build a society which prioritises social justice via solidarity building. Adrian has worked with 2 UN-accredited international organisations, Pax Romana International Movement of Catholic Students (IMCS) and Dignity International before setting up NSI. At NSI, the team of social mobilizers work with marginalised communities from the ASEAN region and beyond to build a competent and resilient movement using critical pedagogy and design thinking. The communities we work with include migrant workers, refugees, domestic workers, victims of forced labour, small scale farmers, indigenous youths and people living in conflict zones. This includes cleaning up the global supply chain from forced labour and ensuring Businesses and Governments are held accountable for human rights violations. Even though NSI is a small and extremely underfunded entity, we have developed competent migrant and refugee leaders who are able to document evidence of human rights and labour violations. We also have coached our interns and volunteers over the years who now contribute via various CSOs. To be sustainable, we have also established formal working relationships with multiple universities, INGOs and intergovernmental agencies to produce critical analysis and policy interventions despite having limited resources. To fight forced labour effectively, NSI and other like-minded NGOs must first be properly resourced. To share solidarity, resources and donations with NSI, do reach us at [email protected], or
