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.
