We have taken a proactive approach to safeguard the rights of HRDs in the Southern Africa region. In response to the increasing threats and challenges faced by HRDs in the region, SouthernDefenders has developed a comprehensive model law aimed at providing legal protection and support to HRDs in their important work of defending human rights.
The Southern Africa model law on the protection and promotion of HRDs is a pioneering initiative that sets forth a framework of legal provisions and principles to promote and safeguard the rights of HRDs. This model law serves as a resource for governments, policymakers, civil society organizations, and other regional stakeholders to develop or revise existing laws and policies to create an enabling environment for HRDs to carry out their vital work without fear of fear reprisals.
The model law covers various areas, including the recognition and protection of HRDs’ rights, the establishment of mechanisms for their protection, the prevention of threats and attacks against HRDs, the provision of support and assistance to HRDs, and the promotion of their participation in decision-making processes.
This is a significant step towards upholding the rights of HRDs and creating a safe and conducive environment for their work in the Southern Africa region. We encourage stakeholders to adopt and implement this model law to protect and promote the fundamental rights of HRDs in Southern Africa.
