Protection International (PI) is an international non-profit organization that supports human rights defenders (HRDs) through comprehensive protection programmes. Through these programmes, we aim at (i) empowering defenders build their capacities in order to manage their protection effectively; (ii) influencing duty-bearing authorities to fulfil their obligation to protect them; and (iii) convincing other individuals and institutions with a stake in the protection of human rights defenders to maximise their positive contribution.
We work in partnerships with communities, grassroots civil society organisations and human rights activists worldwide to bring protection strategies for human rights defenders at risk, from remote villages to policy-makers’ offices, to intergovernmental organisations – so that defenders can do their work and build more prosperous and free societies.
