Emergencies: for human rights and activists in danger

The EU has formal and informal ways to take action to help human rights defenders who are in danger:

  • The EU Parliament can make emergency resolutions denouncing an imminent threat.
  • The EU Commission has contingency funds to provide immediate financial support to the activists in danger, so that they can pay for bodyguards, buy a plane ticket, etc.
  • EU staff abroad (head of the EU delegation to the country, MEP on mission abroad, etc.) may decide to act via diplomatic channels or attract media attention to help the person in danger.
  • Once they are informed of a situation posing an imminent danger to an activist, NGOs in Brussels may be able to network in order to take joint action to help the activist.

If you are facing imminent danger, call Mathias Wuidar at +32 471 29 46 (French or English) or Amalia Rodriguez Fajardo at +32 477 76 23 36 (French, English, Spanish or Italian) or send an e-mail to eu(at)docip.org
