Why create a page with portraits of defenders?

When presenting the situation of human rights defenders, we speak about individual stories of people who try to make human rights a reality in their countries.


The objective of this page is to shine a light on the stories of courageous women and men who may face life-threatening attacks just because they try to protect and promote fundamental rights. 


These portraits show thay every person can face threats and dangers, whether she/he defends human rights on and-hoc basis or she/he dedicated her life to human rights work. 


We will regularly add new portraits in order to show the diversity and richness of the defenders community.
