Guidelines of assistance
AEDH offers emergency services to human rights defenders under threat in need of immediate relocation. They provide legal and medical assistance as needed. Assistance is limited to human rights defenders, but artists can fall within that category.
AEDH has been running an emergency fund for human rights defenders in danger since 1999. The fund aims to protect human rights advocates and to respond rapidly to their calls for help when they are threatened or persecuted. The way that the organization intervenes depends on the local context, the amount of danger the human rights advocates are in, and the nature of the request by the human rights advocates.
