The Norwegian Council for the Rights of the Kurds (RKR) was founded in 1994. RKR is a politically independent human rights organization which seeks to inform the general public about the situation of Kurdish people.
The Kurds are the largest ethnic group in the world without their own state. 30 million Kurds live as a suppressed minority in Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria.
