This booklet is designed for those directly involved in the implementation of the ‘European Guidelines on Human Rights defenders’. The purpose of the Guidelines “is to provide practical suggestions for enhancing EU action” in relation to human rights defenders. If fully implemented, the potential for bringing about change is significant. This document aims to reinforce recommendations made in Amnesty International's 2007 report and to trigger increased, effective, systematic and consistent action to support and protect human rights defenders.
