Civil Right Defenders
Civil Rights Defenders is an international human rights organisation that defends people’s civil and political rights. Our guiding principle is the importance of strong local human rights actors and we partner with and support thousands human rights defenders in some of the world’s most repressive regions. Civil Rights Defenders takes a defender-centric approach, which means that the support provided to partners is based on their needs, usually through long-term partnerships but also in the form of technical trainings, capacity building, financial support and networking opportunities. Together with human rights defenders, we also advance people’s rights globally through advocacy, litigation and public campaigns.
