Protection International empowers Human Rights Defenders to protect themselves, assists government representatives to improve the quality of their protection mechanisms, and helps other partners to increase their contribution to improve the protection of defenders.

Protection International combines its work with defenders. Protection International researches, optimises, develops training and coaching tools, improves methods and content and assimilates these into defenders´ own best practices.
