As the term for the current UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders comes to an end, Open Briefing and 130 partners around the world have published a checklist for the selection and appointment of Michel Forst’s successor.
Open Briefing joins the Vuka! coalition for civic action
Over 150 organisations have come together to combat the global crackdown on civic space. Coalition members include big players, such as Greenpeace International, Save the Children and Oxfam International; our colleagues in the protection ecosystem; and civil society organisations across Asia, Africa and Latin America. Together, we aim to secure crucial short- and long-term victories to increase civil society’s resilience to attacks and reclaim civic space.
