2010 - Now

Civil Rights Defenders is an independent expert organisation founded in Stockholm, Sweden in 1982, with the aim of defending people’s civil and political rights. Their work stretches from their own backyard to countries and regions all over the world.

One of the CRD’s main tasks is to empower its partners – brave human rights defenders, who often put themselves at great risk through their engagement for other people’s rights.
