Protection International is an international, non-profit organisation that brings protection strategies and security management tools to human rights defenders at risk. Since 2004, Protection International has been working with local partners in over thirty countries throughout the world.
Protection International envisions a world where human rights and fundamental freedoms are universally recognized and respected, and where everyone has the right to defend these rights and freedoms without fear of threats or attack.
Our mission is to support human rights defenders through comprehensive protection programmes. Our programmes help defenders build their capacities in order to manage their protection effectively, to allow those that protect them fulfil their obligations, and to convince other individuals and institutions with a stake in the protection of human rights defenders to maximise their positive contribution. Protection International always works in partnership with defenders.
