Abstract

This is a report of an international academic research workshop held at the University of York, as preparatory for a Special Issue publication in the Journal of Human Rights Practice which is to practitioners, scholars and human rights defenders (HRDs) building on research collaboration working together to make a significant contribution to knowledge and practice concerning HRDs at risk. In developing this Special Issue, the 3-day Research Workshop in York in May 2013 has two aims: 1) To provide feedback as a peer group to each author's draft paper for the Special Issue; and 2) To develop ideas for future research that can inform practice on protection of human rights defenders. This report has two sections: Section one is a report of the main points during the presentation of papers and the discussions that followed. Section two is a write-up of the second half of the research workshop where participants reflected collectively on key themes in HRD protection and identified potential new research initiatives and approaches to building knowledge and sharing learning.
