Conectas thanks all those who applied.
A conference of human rights defenders from the Global South that has been held since 2001, the Colloquium, now in its 14th edition, will bring together 52 activists from important organizations, movements and groups in São Paulo at the end of May.
This year, considering the intensified use of protests as a strategy for voicing social demands in various countries, the central theme of the event will be the relationship between human rights and the streets.
For the first time in its history, the Colloquium will be organized by Conectas in conjunction with three other organizations: CELS (Center for Legal and Social Studies) of Argentina, LRC (Legal Resources Centre) of South Africa, and KontraS of Indonesia.
