Public Policies


How to summarise a year spent day by day next to those promoting and protecting human rights? Our Focus Stories, formerly Top Impact stories, showcase some emblematic examples of how slowly but steadily we are taking incremental steps towards a greater promotion of the right to defend human rights. Within this short leaflet, we've highlighted just a few of the many memorable moments of another year filled with ambitious objectives, achieved with communities of human rights defenders.


Ahead of the 20th anniversary of the UN Declaration on Human Rights Defenders, Protection International and the Centre for Applied Human Rights (CAHR) of the University of York hosted an international roundtable in Brussels on 12 and 13 December 2017, entitled “Rethinking the protection of Human Rights Defenders”.
