2018 marks the 20-year anniversary of the 'United Declaration on Human Rights Defenders,' FORUM-ASIA believes that it is important to raise greater awareness about the declaration.

To do so, we have created a range of posters. Each poster will highlight and explain a specific area or part of the declaration. In collaboration with our members, Equality MyanmarCentre for Human Rights and Development, Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates, and Bytes for All, Pakistan, we have translated the posters into four Asian languages: Burmese, Mongolian, Tagalog, and Urdu.
