ISHR viewed the adoption of the European Union Guidelines on Human Rights Defenders as an important step towards the protection of defenders and the promotion of their work internationally as well as nationally.


We have included the use of the Guidelines as an important part of our training courses and discussed them with defenders in Africa, Latin America and Asia. These discussions involved the content and strategic use of the Guidelines, the problems encountered in their implementation as highlighted by the review carried out by the European Union  in 2006, and its conclusions and commitments in this regard. Generally, ISHR invites EU delegations to take part in our activities and engage in a fruitful exchange with defenders.
