Canada’s guidelines on supporting human rights defenders.

“Canada’s Guidelines on Recognizing and Supporting Human Rights Defenders is a how-to guide for supporting human rights defenders—with practical advice for officials at Canadian missions abroad and at Headquarters—as well as a clear statement of Canada’s commitment to promoting all human rights, including by supporting the vital work of human rights defenders. These guidelines reflect the experience gained over the years by Canadian representatives working across the globe to support human rights defenders and are informed by the work and advice of Canadian civil society organizations. These guidelines are intended to complement and support the ongoing work of Canada’s diplomatic corps"--Introd., p. 2.
