Shelter City is going global. Since the founding of the first Shelter City in 2012 in The Hague, the initiative has expanded to include ten cities across The Netherlands. Today, a growing number of cities outside of The Netherlands are offering a temporary safe haven for human rights defenders to continue their important work while gaining the valuable tools and resources to do so.
From Tbilisi, to Dar es Salaam and beyond, Shelter City is growing globally to reach and assist human rights defenders all around the world. Justice and Peace seeks to work together with local governments and human rights activists to expand the initiative, while providing the structural expertise and assistance required. By expanding the Shelter City network, human rights defenders will be able to impact the lives of more people, in more places.
