Description

Conference Defending the Defenders - New alliances for protecting indigenous peoples’ rights

Human rights defenders are dying, attacked and criminalized all over the world. This is happening at an increasing alarming rate. In 2017, 197 people were killed while protecting their community’s land or natural resources. Approximately 40 percent of these were indigenous peoples.

The main aim of the conference is to understand why in particular and increasingly indigenous peoples from developing countries are being killed or persecuted. The conference will examine the key drivers behind this global phenomenon and discuss context-specific cases, and what can be done to change the current situation.
