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 Index is a monitoring platform contributing to the mapping of violations committed towards Human Rights Defenders in order to illustrate and give visibility to the scale of the crackdown and pressure that they face worldwide.
Although this monitoring platform is fed by public alerts provided by ProtectDefenders.eu partners and is based on verified information, the list of alerts can not be taken as complete nor exhaustive in any way. Real figures are much higher and many alerts and attacks still go unreported. Moreover, this tool does not compile alerts on EU countries.
The information in this tool is illustrative and indicative of the scope of the threats and attacks against individuals acting in defence of human rights. The content of this tool does not reflect the official opinion of ProtectDefenders.eu. Neither ProtectDefenders.eu nor any of its partners may be held responsible for the use which may be made of the information contained therein.
