Abstract

The specific objectives of the Conference were to identify current security risks faced by HRDs and review current protection mechanisms in place; to assess existing gaps and develop common strategies to improve HRD protection; and, to agree on best practice suggestions for implementing more effectively the revised EU Guidelines for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders.

This report will draw together common threads of discussion from both days, along the following themes: the implementation of the European Union Guidelines on Human Rights Defenders; awareness of other institutional efforts and mechanisms; sharing and building on other good practice examples highlighted during the Conference; threats and challenges relating to HRD protection; gaps in responses and recommendations.
