Stop the Killings Report
Our latest report "Stop the Killings" analyzes the root causes of the killing of HRDs in Brazil, Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico and the Philippines.
"Corrupt dictators and populist authoritarians have been emboldened to attack not just HRDs but the very idea of Universal Human Rights."
Andrew Anderson, Executive Director
The report is based on original research by Comitê Brasileiro de Defensoras e Defensores de Direitos Humanos - CBDDH, (Brazil), Programa Somos Defensores (Colombia), UDEFEGUA (Guatemala), ACI-Participa (Honduras), Comité Cerezo (Mexico) and iDEFEND, Karapatan and Pahra (Philippines).
With a foreword from United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights Defenders Michel Forst and introduction by Front Line Defenders Exective Director Andrew Anderson, "Stop the Killings" is a vital resource for understanding the current and alarming increase of killings of human rights defenders globally.
