Recommendations to enhance the protection and security of women human rights defenders (WHRDs)

Recommendations to Enhance the Protection and Security of WHRDs was produced by the Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID) as part of its work as Chair of the Urgent Responses Working Group (URWG) for WHRDs at Risk of the Women Human Rights Defenders International Coalition.

These recommendations are intended to support WHRDs’ advocacy efforts to lobby States, regional and international human rights protection mechanisms, international cooperation agencies and donors, and national and transnational corporations, to contribute to the development of an enabling environment free from violence to ensure that WHRDs can carry out their work defending human rights.
