Insan's advocacy programme targets issues related to genocide and crimes against humanity, capital punishment, gender, front-line opinion makers and defenders, human rights organisations and activists, among others - using a specific approach.

Insan has successfully supported individuals, especially activists, in the processing of crucial of asylum cases where necessary.

Insan's democracy watch programme includes pointing out the need for legislative reforms and proposing them, lobbying and campaigning for freedom of speech and expression, and encouraging debate, especially youth-led.

Providing education and knowledge to those who seek it, especially children and youth, is a core value at Insan. Since the Syrian crisis, Insan has been focusing its work on providing the necessary education for Syrian refugee children, to avoid their becoming child soldiers, and basically, "the pen is [indeed] mightier than the sword."

Basing our efforts on the SPHERE core standards wherever possible, Insan aims, to the best of our capacity, to provide the urgent and basic necessities required for refugee families primarily in Lebanon, and secondarily in surrounding countries.

Insan’s main focus when it comes to International Justice is to see countries in a state of transition (specifically the Arab Spring in this case) signing the Rome Statute granting the International Criminal Court (ICC) jurisdiction to act as a preventive measure on crimes against humanity.

Among other such successful results, Insan’s main achievement in this programme was our successful and intensive efforts which resulted in Bashar al Assad holding a meeting for the Syndicate of Arab Lawyers and announcing the release of the Damascus Spring POCs in 2005.

Insan aims to alleviate distress caused by completely substandard shelter, or the complete lack of it, especially taking into consideration problematic weather conditions in tented settlements that face extreme heat, or extreme cold, snow, and flooding.
