Civil Rights Defenders arbete för mänskliga rättigheter
Civil Rights Defenders is an international human rights organisation based in Stockholm, Sweden, that defends people’s civil and political rights around the world. Our goal is to achieve long-term, sustainable human rights progress. Unlike other major human rights organizations that focus on research, global campaigns, or monitoring, Civil Rights Defenders primarily supports local human rights defenders directly. We partner with them for the long-term, because they understand their regions, and what needs to be done to achieve long-term change, best. We have over 200 partners around the world, whom we provide with security support, capacity building, financial support, and innovative solutions to the problems they face.
