Peace Brigades International-Canada is a country group. The work of country groups is fundamental to the protective accompaniment of human rights
defenders and increases our global impact. Country groups work to raise the visibility of at-risk HRDs and to create support networks. Thanks to their links with government officials, parliamentarians, legal bodies and other groups, they are able to amplify the voices of human rights defenders around the world and ensure that the international community responds adequately to their needs. Country groups are also responsible for recruiting and training field volunteers, raising awareness of attacks against human rights defenders and securing funding for our field work.
