Description of your organization/institution
We provide protection, support and recognition to local (women) human rights defenders who work in areas of repression and conflict and have requested our support. We believe that lasting transformation of conflicts cannot come from outside, but must be based on the capacity and desires of local people. We avoid imposing, interfering or getting directly involved in the work of the people we accompany. Our work is effective because we take an integrated approach, combining a presence alongside human rights defenders on the ground with an extensive network of international support. PBI provides protection and support to individuals, communities, movements and organizations that defend human rights through protective accompaniment, international observation, advocacy, awareness raising and capacity development.
