our human rights defenders

Denyok, Karak (Human Rights Defender from South Sudan) - by J Houlihan (Autumn 2012) (18).jpg

Since 2008 we have hosted 84 visiting human rights defenders from across the world.  Their work covers civil and political rights as well as social, economic and cultural rights. To find out more about the defenders we are currently hosting and their work at CAHR click here.

More information on how to apply for the Protective Fellowship scheme can be found here.

Hear some of our former defenders tell their stories about risk and repression, and why taking time out from difficult working environments benefits their activism in the long run.

Resources for defenders

As part of our research project Navigating Risk, Managing Security and Receiving Support, we have put together a resources page with links to a number of relevant training materials, toolkits and funding sources for HRDs.
