Ashoka Fellow
Czech Republic
Fellow Since 2007
This description of Katerina Hruba's work was prepared when Katerina Hruba was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2007.
Katerina Hruba works in public interest law in the Czech Republic with a focus on human rights. She believes the dire situation of immigrants in her country—particularly the Roma—is perpetuated rather than relieved by current attempts to provide help because it separates social work from upholding the rule of law. By setting legal precedents in national and international courts and encouraging the active participation of the Roma, she believes there is great potential to dramatically improve the status of this minority community.
