Südwind welcomes the UN Human Rights Council’s adoption of a new resolution on human rights defenders (HRDs)
The use and abuse of national law to impair, restrict and criminalise the work of human rights defenders is a contravention of international law and must end, according to a landmark resolution adopted by the UN Human Rights Council.

The resolution on “protecting human rights defenders” (A/HRC/22/L.13) was adopted at the 22nd Session of the UNHRC in Geneva on 21 March 2013. The resolution, tabled by Norway, received the support of 62 states across 6 continents, and was adopted without a vote. Iran is not a elected member of HRC.
