WHAT

Protection International supports human rights defenders in their protection by:

 

Joining them in defining and putting in practice protection tactics and setting up Protection Desks in countries or regions where defenders are at particular risk

 

Building the capacities of individual defenders, organisations, networks, and communities to analyse risk and improve their security

 

Researching good protection practices and challenges in protection and translating our findings into manuals, reports and other tools

 

Advocating for Nation-States to fulfil their obligation to protecting human rights defenders
