MONITORING PLATFORM OF ALERTS AND ATTACKS AGAINST HUMAN RIGHTS DEFENDERS

Human Rights Defenders are increasingly targeted because of their work to defend Human Rights. Their physical security and ability to work is often at stake. ProtectDefenders.eu monitoring platform compiles alerts about the violations committed towards Human Rights Defenders in order to document the scale of the crackdown and pressure that they face worldwide.

This monitoring platform is fed by alerts provided by ProtectDefenders.eu partners based on verified information. The list of alerts does not pretend to be exhaustive and real figures are likely much higher, as many alerts and attacks go unreported.

An adequate warning helps to break the isolation in which actors of repression attempt to place Human Rights Defenders. The objective of this tool is to provide the necessary information for organizations, bodies and institutions to engage and take action to alleviate the plight of Human Rights Defenders at risk.
