Our work in Sweden and the world 2011
The need of increased support to human rights defenders at risk characterised our work in 2011. Regimes in many parts of the world intensified the oppression against those who fight for our rights. We started an emergency fund in order to assist in urgent situations. We also sued Sweden before the European Court for a fatal shooting which shows significant defects within the Swedish police.

Civil Rights Defenders prepares a Code of Quality Report 2011 each year in accordance with the Swedish Fundraising Council’s Code of Quality of 30 May 2007. The purpose of the code is to increase transparency and openness within the organisation and to contribute to increased professionalism, improved governance, management and control, as well as making sure that there are structures in place for evaluating the organisations’ operations.Annual Reports.
