The Time is NOW! – Effective public policies for the right to defend human rights

21 February 2018

Protection International and the Centre for Justice and International Law (CEJIL) present their new publication: The Time is Now | Effective public policies for the right to defend human rights.

In view of the high number of attacks against human rights defenders in the Americas (and the rest of the world), THE TIME IS NOW 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.

Since it was launched, Es Tiempo Ya has been presented in Bogotá, Colombia; Tegucigalpa, Honduras; Ciudad de Guatemala, Guatemala; Ciudad de Mexico, Mexico; Geneva, Switzerland; Lima, Peru; Washington DC, USA and Berlin, Germany.

THE TIME IS NOW is available in English and Spanish, as well as the executive summaries.
