ISHR’s programmes provide support and solidarity to human rights defenders working on the following issues, which we recognise as intersectional and interdependent:

  • Equality, dignity and non-discrimination
  • Environmental justice and sustainability
  • Accountability for the repression of human rights defenders
  • Transparency and the rule of law

Each of our programmes uses a range of integrated tactics, developed and implemented in partnership with defenders and their organisations, networks and coalitions at the national, regional and international levels. These tactics include:

  • Training, capacity building, strategic advice, advocacy support and fellowships for human rights defenders
  • Legislative and policy research, advocacy and advice
  • Strategic litigation and interventions
  • Narrative development, campaigning and mobilisation
  • Coalition and movement building and coordination, including acting as secretariat for HRCnet and as co-convenor of the Business Network on Civic Freedoms and Human Rights Defenders

Collectively, ISHR’s programmes and tactics contribute to ensure that we achieve our strategic goals that:

  1. Human rights defenders are equipped, connected, supported and influential
  2. States, businesses and other non-State actors respect and protect human rights defenders
  3. Human rights laws and mechanisms are accessible, responsive and effective
