Supporting Human Rights Defenders and Strengthening the System
Sep 05, 2020 Season 1 Episode 5

Vincent Ploton is Director of development and treaty body advocacy at the International Service for Human Rights (ISHR) in Geneva, Switzerland.

This episode examines the work of human rights defenders, including what they do and how their work can be supported. We also look at how States are limiting the role of defenders, civil society and punishing voices of dissent.

We then explore the role of human rights treaty bodies and ask how these institutions can work more effectively and be reformed to better protect human rights.
