Annual Report of Front Line Defenders now available

January 25, 2013

Front Line Defenders launched today its 2013 Annual Report on human rights defenders, which rather confusingly in fact covers 2012. It highlights developments in the
situation of human rights defenders in 2012 and analyses the situation in each region of the world. It concludes: “The sad reality is that while governments
proclaim their support for human rights and their respect for the work of human rights defenders in international fora, in practice, human rights defenders face a daily struggle for survival.”Frontline NEWlogo-2 full version - cropped

In 2012, Front Line Defenders issued 287 urgent appeals on 460 human rights defenders at risk in 69 countries; it  provided 267 security grants and trained 358 human rights defenders.

The Report, currently in English, will shortly be available in French, Spanish, Russian, Arabic and Farsi.The Report is available at <>
