Protection International
PI is an international not-for-profit organization under Belgium law (aisbl). In many parts of the world the defence of human rights evokes pressure, threats and attacks from state and non-state actors. PI works with the local human rights movement to develop strategies and programmes prevent and counter such counter pressure. It researches strategies and security management tools that protect human rights defenders, and shares its expertise in this area with people at risk due to their human rights work. PI tailors its approach to local context and profile. It currently works in Asia, Africa, Europe and Latin America, with presences in Thailand, Indonesia, Kenya, DR Congo, Colombia, Guatemala, and Belgium (head-office).
