Civil Rights Defenders (CRD)

Member Description

Civil Rights Defenders defends people’s civil and political rights in pursuit of our vision. We partner with and support human rights defenders who work in some of the world’s most repressive regions.

Through advocacy, litigation, and public campaigns, we advance people’s rights globally. We also act as Sweden’s local civil rights watchdog group.

CRD’s Brussels office coordinates the relationship between CRD and the EU institutions, facilitating in particular exchange of information from the organisation and its partners to the EU and vice-versa.
