Our commitment to maintaining a presence in countries for as long as needed gives us in-depth knowledge of the political situation in these places as it affects human rights defenders.

Providing objective, accurate information is vital to ensuring the effectiveness of our work. First hand information collected by PBI is shared with multi-lateral institutions, national policy makers and members of the general public in order to raise awareness about the situation facing human rights defenders in the countries where PBI works and the actions necessary to provide support and protection to them.
