Special Rapporteur report – Good practices in the protection of human rights defenders

The Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders has submitted his report to the UN Human Rights Council, highlighting good practices in the protection of human rights defenders at the local, national, regional and international levels. He outlines protection initiatives in three interrelated areas: practices that strengthen the resources and capacities of defenders; measures that foster an enabling environment for the defence of their rights; and regional and international initiatives that support their protection at the local and
national levels.

The report can be found at the link below [look for A/HRC/31/55  & A/HRC/31/55/Add. 1]
