Enira Bronitskaya

Human Constanta

Enira Bronitskaya is a woman human rights defender and a member of the human rights organization Human Constanta, which works to promote the protection of the rights of foreign citizens and stateless persons in Belarus, as well as anti-discrimination and digital freedoms. The woman human rights defender is also a member of the Supervisory Board of the Office for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and a consultant for the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR).

The environment for the work of human rights defenders (HRDs) in Belarus has continuously deteriorated since an authoritarian political regime was established there in 1994. HRDs are systematically subjected to intimidation and harassment, including judicial harassment, restrictions on freedom of expression, association and assembly, and movement, as well as arbitrary detention and conviction, ill-treatment and defamation, searches of offices and personal belongings, and confiscations of equipment. The widespread impunity of law enforcement officers contributes to even further human rights violations and retaliations against HRDs.
