, Index number: IOR 40/8600/2018

Amnesty International welcomes the opportunity to contribute to the Questionnaire on the situation of human rights defenders sent by the United Nations (UN) Special Rapporteur. Despite the many efforts made by different UN entities, as well as by some states, civil society organizations, human rights defenders and other relevant stakeholders during the last 20 years, Amnesty international considers that there is still a lot to be done in order to ensure the full implementation of the Declaration on Human Rights Defenders and guarantee a safe and enabling environment for all those who defend human rights.
