Security of Defenders

Navigating Risk, Managing Security and Receiving Support: A Study of Human Rights Defenders in Colombia, Mexico, Kenya, Egypt and Indonesia

Principal Investigator: Alice Nah

This project is part of a broader multi-year international research study entitled 'Strengthening the Security of Human Rights Defenders at Risk: An Analysis of Security Management Practices and Civil Society Networks of Protection' which analyses the security management practices of human rights defenders at risk, and examines how these practices intersect with protection initiatives conducted on their behalf by civil society networks.

The intended outcome of this larger study is to enable human rights defenders at risk as well as their supporters (such as civil society practitioners, policymakers, intergovernmental officials, and donors) to use this knowledge and understanding in ways that strengthen the overall security of human rights defenders at risk in different contexts around the world.
