Help shape our work in support of human rights defenders & civic freedoms: complete this survey by Monday, 5 April 2021

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre's Human Rights Defenders (HRDs) & Civic Freedoms programme is consulting with human rights defenders, civil society groups, and investors to deepen our understanding of current priorities and gaps in support for defenders focused on business-related abuses, our programme's impact to date, and how we can further strengthen our action in solidarity with defenders moving forward.

This survey is part of a broader consultation with human rights defenders, civil society groups, investors, companies and business associations to deepen our understanding of current priorities and gaps in support for defenders focused on business-related abuses, our programme's impact to date, and how we can further strengthen our action in solidarity with defenders moving forward. Ongoing work to protect civic freedoms and support human rights defenders continues to be vital; our recent report tracked 604 attacks in 2020 against defenders focused on business-related activities and explored how risks have increased during the COVID-19 pandemic as some governments have misused the situation to further curtail civic freedoms and environmental regulation.

Can you help us shape the future of this programme by completing this survey by Monday, 5 April 2021? The survey for human rights defenders will take approximately 15 minutes to complete, and is available in both English and Spanish; click the globe icon on the top right side of the survey to access your preferred language version. The surveys for investors and companies will take approximately 10-12 minutes to complete, and are available in English.
