Africa Quarterly Update: Human Rights Defenders in Africa, threats, challenges and how to support them - Issue 4

This edition looks into attacks on Human Rights Defenders and activists across Africa who work on Business related activities. We also highlight some of the key threats that Human Rights Defenders and activists face in the region and how these threats can impact their work whilst providing some important resources that can be of use to defenders. We also feature a guest blog from Natural Justice's Claire Martins and Eva Okoth who provide critical insights into why and how African Human Rights Defenders can be given support and specialised assistance including specialised legal knowledge.
