Front Line Defenders

Front Line Defenders is responding to the COVID-19 crisis by taking necessary measures to ensure that support for human rights defenders at risk can be maintained. While some workshops and other travel plans have been impacted, protection grant applications will be received and processed as normal, and advocacy efforts on cases will be sustained as far as possible.

Global Analysis 2019

Global Analysis 2019 details the physical assaults, defamation campaigns, digital security threats, judicial harassment, and gendered attacks faced by HRDs and women human rights defenders (WHRDs) around the world. As recent events from Hong Kong to Baghdad have demonstrated, HRDs are at the forefront of social change and face significant threats and risks for doing so – whether demanding civil and political freedoms or protecting the environment and combating climate change.
