“In a number of countries, human rights defenders and journalists are subject to arbitrary detentions, kidnappings, disappearances, physical aggressions, judicial harassments, death threats and intimidations. Some have paid the ultimate price for their commitment.
I hope that these extraordinary and courageous people will inspire others to create a better, safer and more gender-equal society.”
From 30 November 2022 to 15 December 2022, the Swedish Embassy in The Hague, together with the Swedish Institute, show a series of portraits of Human Rights Defenders. By sharing these portraits, Sweden shows its support to Human Rights Defenders everywhere.
