New Report: Frontline Defenders Global Analysis 2019


Coalition member Frontline Defenders released its Global Analysis 2019,  a report reviewing the state of the world for human rights defenders in 2019.  The report details the physical assaults, defamation campaigns, digital security threats, judicial harassment, and gendered attacks faced by HRDs and women human rights defenders (WHRDs) around the world.

HRDs are at the forefront of social change as recent events from Hong Kong to Baghdad have demonstrated, but face significant threats and risks for doing so – whether demanding civil and political freedoms or protecting the environment and combating climate change.
