AMP Briefing Paper: Threat Situation of HRDs in the Philippines 2023

Attacks, vilifications, criminalization, and violence against human rights defenders (HRDs) in the Philippines are continuing under the new administration of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. Accessing protection measures for HRDs at risk has become more important , especially in a country that is still deeply shaped by a “culture of impunity.”

Against this backdrop, the AMP organized an online workshop on June 13, 2023, to map main threats against HRDs of all kinds of human rights sectors in the Philippines as well as the needs and challenges to respond to the situation of HRDs at risk. This briefing paper is based on discussions during the workshop, statements by participants, and further complementing research.
