ISHR’s Reprisals Handbook is aimed first and foremost at human rights defenders who interact with regional and international human rights systems.
It highlights the risks that you, as defenders, can face from interacting with international and regional human rights systems, and suggests ways in which you can leverage these systems to provide some degree of protection for yourselves and promote accountability for perpetrators of acts of intimidation or reprisal.
