Human rights activists are under threat in many parts of the world. Not least those who work on economically or culturally sensitive issues such as indigenous rights, environmental and labour rights, gender equality, and sexual and reproductive rights. What makes them persist with their work under these extremely challenging conditions? How do they navigate – and what influences their choice of strategies? These questions will be explored in the new CMI/LawTransform research project Rights ACT, starting with this panel, where activists will share their experiences and insights.
