Since many years, the staff of Protection International, through its Research, Policy and Training Unit, has sought to systematize its protection work carried out in very different contexts. Therefore, studying and elaborating protection and security operational tools is a core activity of our global programme for defenders.

We publish several manuals and studies based on lessons learned in order to develop best practices and make them freely available online for civil society organizations (under Creative Commons BY-NC-ND License). You can download them in this section or order hard copies by writing to us.

 We invite you to discover PI’s different publications. Hard copies can be ordered for the classroom below.
