The Barcelona Guidelines
We are delighted that the Barcelona Guidelines for the Wellbeing of Human Rights Defenders have been presented by UN Special Rapporteur on human rights defenders, Michel Forst at the #DublinPlatform! The Barcelona Guidelines are based on the research findings from the project and discussions between coordinators, wellbeing service providers, and researchers from around the world at an international retreat in Barcelona in June 2019 (hence the name, The Barcelona Guidelines).
One of key activities of this project was the production of guidelines for coordinators of relocation initiatives and wellbeing service providers on how to support the wellbeing of defenders at risk on relocation initiatives.
The Guidelines are available in English, Spanish, French, Arabic, and Russian. More info here: https://hrdhub.org/wellbeing
