Protection Manual for Human Rights Defenders

Front Line Defenders & Peace Brigades International

This manual offers a practical resource that human rights defenders can use in developing their security plans and strategies. It is meant to give people practical advice on how to deal with the threats, intimidation, and attacks that often arise when performing the work of a human rights defender. Front Line was founded in Dublin in 2001 with the specific aim of protecting Human Rights Defenders; people who work non-violently for any or all of the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Front Line believes that human rights defenders are key agents of change and that the only way to ensure long terms sustainable development based on human rights, is to create a safe space in which human rights defenders can work.
