Protection International and the Centre for Justice and International Law (CEJIL) present their new publication: Es Tiempo Ya, políticas publicas eficaces para el derecho a defender los derechos humanos.

In view of the high number of attacks against human rights defenders in the Americas (and the rest of the world), ES TIEMPO YA tries to find out what is going wrong with the national mechanisms and programs that several governments in the region have put in place to protect them.

Protection International and CEJIL bring together their experience in the region and contribute with a novel approach, offering new possibilities to improve protection policies.


The publication will be presented in different places over the next few months, starting with Bogotá, Colombia, on 1 March 2018 at the Universidad de los Andes.

¡ES TIEMPO YA! is currently available in Spanish. The English version of the publication will be available in the coming weeks.
