Defenders’ Days 2015

At Defenders’ Days over 160 human rights defenders from 35 countries, are given the opportunity to engage in a capacity building training program on a wide variety of topics, such as digital security, video campaigning, and how to use shadow reporting as a strategic tool within the UN Human Rights System.

During Defenders’ Days 2015 the participants will be able to attend joint sessions with human rights defenders sharing knowledge on successful human rights activities and listen to presentations ans speeches by representatives from the international community, such as Mr Michel Forst, UN Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights Defenders.

On the evening of April 10 we will celebrate the work and achievements of one of our brave colleagues with the Civil Rights Defender of the Year Award ceremony.
