The first in a series of profiles of NGOs fighting to obtain consultative status to the UN through the ECOSOC Committee on NGOs, required in order to attend and participate in many UN meetings, including those of the Human Rights Council. The profile of these brave Algerian human rights defenders shows the Committee's dysfunction and the need for reform to ensure that their voice can be heard at the UN.
