Our vision: A world of democratic societies in which we all enjoy our civil and political rights.

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.
