Facilitator's Guide for Human Rights Defender Security and Protection Program

This facilitation guide is aimed toward anyone, member of PBI or not, who would like to share security and protection tools with individuals or organizations that defend human rights. The proposed tools are based on over thirty years experience ensuring the protection and security of PBI teams and volunteers in order to provide effective protection to accompanied HRDs in the diverse countries where PBI has worked. In this sense, international accompaniment has sought to gradually share security and protection tools through consultations and workshops. With the practical and conceptual workshop design presented in this guide, PBI seeks to offer a space for exchange so that HRDs can develop the capacity to generate and implement their own long term security and protection strategies.
