Speak Truth To Power, The Hague


In collaboration with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Justice & Peace, this international seminar was organized with Human Rights Defenders (HRDs) and focused on the challenges they face:

  • To make their voices heard more effectively in international fora and in their own countries,
  • To identify and further develop mechanisms to provide an enabling environment at international, regional and local level for the protection and empowerment of HRDs,
  • To identify expertise and skills needed to further strengthen vulnerable local HRDs living and operating outside the country capitals and in remote areas, and further develop relevant tools and modules
