Working Papers

working paper series

The Working Papers series aims to make research related to human rights defenders accessible to the public and to promote further research that is relevant to human rights defenders. 

The papers in this series present recent research findings, highlight under-explored issues, and articulate new theoretical or methodological approaches for research related to human rights defenders.

If you are interested in contributing to the Working Papers series please get in touch with us at
