Today is International Human Rights Day. The rights to equality and non-discrimination are central to the human rights system, and their protection has a positive impact on all other human rights. Consequently, today’s appeal by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to everyone to stand by human rights defenders who act to end discrimination is most welcome.
The work of human rights defenders most often goes unnoticed and unappreciated. These are individuals at the very forefront of human rights protection, who put their security and wellbeing at risk on a daily basis, in order to fight for the rights of vulnerable, excluded and discriminated against individuals and communities.
