Field Projects

On request, our field projects provide protection, recognition and support to human rights defenders working in areas or repression and conflict. A highly visible physical presence alongside threatened defenders as they carry out their work is an integral part of our protection strategy. PBI field volunteers provide a visible reminder to potential perpetrators of human rights abuses that the world is watching and prepared to act. PBI currently maintains a permanent presence in Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico and Nepal.
