Protection Manual for LGBTI Defenders

Author: S. Kirven, E. Eguren, M. Caraj
Publication Date: Jan 2010

Protection International has been working in the protection of human rights defenders for some years. Through its work with LGBTI defenders in Nepal and confirmed by other defenders around the globe it began to identify common issues that affected LGBTI communities and those that defend them. The manual is a result of the input of many people. It is designed to be practical, it is designed to challenge, to generate a debate within organisations and perhaps more ambitiously within broader intersecting social movements.
