EHAHRDP Journal Article Published on Networks for HRD Protection

EHAHRDP has been published in a special issue on the Protection of Human Rights Defenders in the Journal of Human Rights Practice. The special issue contains useful articles from organizations across the globe focused on promoting and protecting the rights of human rights defenders. The Journal of Human Rights Practice is an Oxford Journal with a focus on bridging the gap between human rights practitioners and academicians.

Our article “Networks for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders: Notes from the Field” is an original policy & practice note which explores the historical influences which shaped EHAHRDP/EHAHRDN, the strategies we use in the interrelated areas of HRD protection, advocacy, security management, and capacity building. The article summarises an evolution of thinking and practice over 8 years of work for the service of human rights defenders in the East & Horn of Africa.

The entire special issue of the Journal of Human Rights Practice is available free of charge for the next 3 months at http://jhrp.oxfordjournals.org/content/5/3.toc

Human Rights Defender of the Month: Andrew Gole

Andrew Gole’s journey to become a human rights defender (HRD) was sparked by a small request: in 2015, a human rights organisation reached out to the trained software engineer about a digital security training. “I didn’t know much about the HRD eco-system or about digital security as an environment on its own,” Andrew says. “So, I did some research, and realised digital security support is just the basic support I used to provide in an internet café.”
