Front Line Defenders

Organisation ID: CHY14029

Front Line Defenders is the International Foundation for the protection of human rights defenders. We work to provide fast and effective action to help protect human rights defenders at risk so they can continue their work as key agents of social change.

Front Line Defenders seeks to provide rapid and practical support to at-risk human rights defenders, including through:

  • international advocacy on behalf of human rights defenders at immediate risk;

  • grants to pay for the practical security needs of human rights defenders;

  • training and resource materials on security and protection, including digital security;

  • rest and respite, including the Front Line Fellowship;

  • opportunities for networking and exchange between human rights defenders, including at the biennial Dublin Platform;

  • the annual Front Line Defenders Award for Human Rights Defenders at Risk;

  • an emergency 24 hour phone line for human rights defenders operating in Arabic, English, French, Spanish and Russian.
