The Declaration On Human Rights Defenders

FORUM-ASIA recognises the need to address the ongoing trends of violations against human rights defenders (HRDs) in Asia, and their key  role in ensuring that everyone’s human rights are protected and fulfilled.
To this end, FORUM-ASIA has produced a booklet explanatory of the Declaration on the Right and Responsibility of Individuals, Groups and  Organs of Society to Promote and Protect Universally Recognized Human Rights and Fundamental Freedom, commonly referred to as the Declaration on human rights defenders.
This booklet aims to emphasise the role and rights of human rights defenders as well as the responsibilities of others towards them, and to  provide practical information to enhance their security.
