Report of fact-finding mission by EHAHRDP/PDU

The East and Horn of Africa Human Rights Defenders Project (EHAHRDP) and Protection Desk Uganda( PDU) carried out a short exploratory mission to Dar Es Salaam from 25th– 28th November 2009 to briefly assess the current situation of human rights defenders in Tanzania.

The mission proved very fruitful helping to offer an overview of the situation of human rights defenders (HRDs) in Tanzania and identify a series of gaps in the current protection mechanisms available to Tanzania HRDs as well as possible strategies to build-on and strengthen what is available.

In order to share these findings with you, we have drafted a brief report offering an overview of the findings and a series of recommendations. We hope that you will find it useful and that it will help shape your current and future HRD policies.
