Special Rapporteur Questionnaire for Human Rights Defenders


The next thematic report of the Special Rapporteur to the General Assembly in October 2013 will focus on the links between large-scale development projects and a safe and enabling environment for human rights defenders, with a particular emphasis on the challenges of the human rights based approach to development and the role of human rights defenders.

To this end, the Special Rapporteur is requesting Member States, national human rights institutions, non-governmental organizations and regional human rights mechanisms to complete a questionnaire and send it to defenders@ohchr.org   by 24 June 2013, at the latest.  Responses received after this date might not be considered in the preparation of the final report. Should you have any questions, please send an e-mail to the same address.

Please distribute this message if you have contacts in your network who can participate.
