Ensuring protection – European Union Guidelines on Human Rights Defenders

A set of EU guidelines on human rights defenders provides an overview of the EU’s role and aspirations, and has been translated into local strategies for EU missions in third countries. The guidelines can have a concrete impact on human rights protection ’on the ground’. They also provide for intervention by the European Union when human rights defenders are at risk, and propose practical means of supporting and assisting these individuals and NGOs.
