Annual Report 2009
On September 11th 2009, we took a major step in the organisation’s history by changing our name to Civil Rights Defenders. We were heartened by the extremely positive response to the new name. The photo exhibition “Our Rights”, produced in partnership with the famous photographer Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin, informed hundreds of thousands of people about us and our work.
In November, we brought together Russia’s leading human rights defenders at a conference in Stockholm to discuss the grave situation in the North Caucasus. We were successful in making our voices heard ahead of the EU-Russia Summit. Read more in our Annual Report.Annual Reports.
