A global pandemic is a new situation for all of us. Most of us already are or soon may be forced to start working remotely. There is no doubt this crisis will be abused to further repress human rights defenders (HRDs) and human rights organisations (HROs).

This is offered as inspiration to evaluate and improve protection of your particular situation. And if you are a HRD or HRO at risk in your country, you may always reach out to Front Line Defenders for help – the organisation is at work and fully operational during this time.

The guide focuses on strategies for physical, emotional and digital protection.
