Who are Human Rights Defenders?

Human Rights Defenders are people who promote and protect universally recognised human rights and fundamental freedoms using exclusively non-violent means. These include civil and political rights, as well as economic, social and cultural rights. Human Rights Defenders also promote and protect the rights of members of minority groups. The broad range of activities carried out by Human Rights Defenders can include the following:

  • Documenting and reporting human rights violations;

  • Seeking remedies for victims of human rights violations through the provision of legal, psychological, medical or other support;

  • Combating the culture of impunity which can hide systematic and repeated breaches of human rights and fundamental freedoms;

  • Mainstreaming a human rights culture, and transmitting information about HRDs at the national, regional and international levels;

  • Advocacy for the respect of human rights.
