Feb 28, 2022 Download File

CHRI is one of the signatories to this statement at the HRC signed by numerous CSOs urging the HRC to adopt a resolution "on human rights defenders operating in conflict and post-conflict situations.  This is a useful and timely focus providing a means to give effect to a range of recommendations including those contained in the report of the Special Rapporteur on Human Rights Defenders in 2020." The letter underlines the need for "the Council to adopt a resolution that reflects the gravity and the reality of the situation defenders face every day and is tailored to addressing the specific protection needs they face."
