Thank you for your interest in Protection International’s work.

Protection International is an international non-profit organisation that supports human rights defenders in developing their security and protection management strategies. We specialise in preventative protection, particularly through:

  • Actionable research
  • Capacity building
  • Network & alliance building
  • Advocacy
  • Awareness raising
  • Ad-hoc support to human rights organisations at-risk

Protection International does not provide emergency evacuation support or emergency grants for human rights defenders in imminent danger. If you require emergency support, please contact the Urgent helpdesk through the following channels: 24h emergency hot line +353-1-210-0489, skype: @front-line-emergency?call, or email through a secure and encrypted channel.

If you would like to improve your knowledge about security and protection management for your human rights organisation, activist group or coalition, we offer online courses three times per year.
