On top of urgent alerts aimed at documenting situations of harassment and mobilising influential actors, the Observatory regularly publishes reports outlining the working context of defenders, individual cases of repression, as well as recommendations that are used for advocacy purposes. Overall, the Observatory is active in over 60 countries every year, on all the continents.
