FEATURED RESOURCES on Security for Human Rights Defenders: Book, Manual and Toolkit

Insiste, Resiste, Persiste, Existe: Women’s Human Rights Defenders’ Security Strategies (Resiste) by Jane Barry and Vahida Nainar is presented by Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Human Rights.

Resiste brings us the voices of women human rights defenders (WHRDs) from all over the world. Each woman speaks from her personal experience of combating violence and discrimination in complex contexts – in situations of overt or hidden conflict, organized armed violence as well as rising fundamentalisms in Iran, Colombia, Nepal, Burma, Thailand, Algeria, Tunisia, Bosnia, Serbia and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Resiste introduces the concept of ‘integrated security’ – coined by Colombian activists and echoed by other WHRDs across the world: a concept that challenges us all to redefine the militarized, disconnected concept of ‘security’ and recognize that integrated security is about feeling safe in all aspects of our lives – from our ability to feed our families to speaking freely about our governments. This document is available in English, Español, Bosnian, Français, Arabic, and Russian.

New Protection Manual for Human Rights Defenders (3rd Edition) by research and text by Enrique Eguren Fernández and Marie Caraj presented by Protection International

The purpose of this new manual is to provide human rights defenders with additional knowledge and some tools that may be useful for improving their understanding of security and protection. It is hoped that the manual will support training on security and protection and will help defenders to undertake their own risk assessments and define security rules and procedures which suit their particular situation. This manual is available in English, Español, Français, Indonesian, Arabic, and Russian.
