South-east Asia: Bravery punished: repression of young human rights defenders in Southeast Asia
Young human rights defenders across Southeast Asia are challenging the abuse of power, standing up against injustice, and speak out in support of marginalized individuals and communities. In doing so, they face grave risks and practical challenges relating to their age, identity and status in society. Rather than dismissing the contributions of young people, Southeast Asian authorities should embrace the role that youth and young human rights defenders can play in building stronger and more inclusive societies.
