Join us in a dialogue with human rights defenders supported by ProtectDefenders.eu. With the participation of the UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders, Mary Lawlor, and the EU Special Representative for Human Rights, Eamon Gilmore.
To conclude a series of internal consultations with human rights defenders, strategies and innovative actions will be discussed to better respond to three challenges facing HRDs and accentuated by the COVID-19 pandemic:
- Digital risks
- Increased violence against women human rights defenders
- Shrinking spaces for advocacy and mobilisation
This roundtable will be moderated by Hassan Shire, Executive Director of DefendDefenders, a member of the Consortium of ProtectDefenders.eu.
