Important Information!

Dear civil society partners,

How can we support human rights defenders at risk when they need to relocate to the EU? What support do they need once they have moved to safety? What is needed in terms of advocacy and awareness raising efforts?

Together with leading experts in this field, we will explore this topic in a webinar on Wednesday, 20 March, at 10:00 CET.

In this session, we will:

  1. revisit the relocation challenges that human rights defenders face
  2. update you on key developments since FRA’s latest report on this topic (July 2023)
  3. explore together how civil society organisations could advance the issue and support the relocated defenders
