In solidarity with the human rights movement, Dejusticia has developed a fellowship program to support human rights defenders of the Global South who, because of their work and advocacies, have been subjected to elevated risk from repressive actions by governments and other actors. Through the fellowship program, they offer the fellows respite from the difficult contexts in which they work, time to reflect on and retool their strategies and approaches, the opportunity to receive financial support especially in cases where international funding has been cut off by their governments, and access to our research facilities and our researchers, to empower them to access a safe space to be more effective in the work they do at home.
