Below is a list of questions to serve as a framework for the discussion in this thread:
- How do we define who is and who is not a ‘human rights defender’?
- How does this affect the way that protection and support is provided for and accessed by defenders?
- When do defenders refer to themselves in public as a ‘human rights defender’, and when do they avoid doing so? What are the implications of such self-identification?
