Som følge af COVID-19 pandemien ses der nu flere overtrædelser af menneskerettigheder i det Nepalesiske lavland Terai end tidligere, såsom øget vold i hjemmet, retslige overtrædelser og mere kriminalitet. Netop derfor er menneskerettighedsforkæmpere vigtigere end nogensinde før. Dog møder menneskerettighedsforkæmpere ofte modstand fra både statslige og ikke-statslige aktører, og har derfor hårdt brug for beskyttelse og støtte. På baggrund af dette har indsatsen til formål at styrke de aktivister der dagligt kæmper på vegne af Nepals mest sårbare grupper: fattige, arbejdsløse, migranter, ofrer for vold og andre marginaliserede grupper der er hårdest ramt af pandemiens konsekvenser. Sammen med vores lokale partner INSEC vil Folkekirkens Nødhjælp implementere aktiviteter der støtter forkæmperenes arbejde via diverse træninger, etablering af netværker, oplysningskampagner, underskriftsindsamlinger og skabelse af dialog med lokalregeringen samt støtte lokale, institutionelle mekanismer.

Violence against women has increased in Palestine during the covid-19 pandemic. While violence against women was already widespread, the pandemic has disproportionately affected women, and emergency measures have acted as catalysts for a dramatic increase in domestic violence. Civil society actors are finding it increasingly difficult to fulfill their engagements and provide quality support to women due to the new movement restrictions. This project, in partnership with the Palestinian women’s’ rights organisation Rural Women Development Society, aims at strengthening Palestinian women’s’ organizations’ capacity to continue supporting women victims of violence during the covid-19 crisis, and to scale up pressure on duty bearers to adopt a family law. This will be achieved through supporting survivors of violence during crises, enhanced remote services during lockdowns, broad awareness raising and a revived concerted advocacy effort to put violence against women on the political agenda.

The main purpose of the proposed intervention is to counter the increasing violations of fundamental human rights and rights at work, which have accelerated during the COVID-19 crisis in Colombia. This will be done through capacity building of local trade unions and a national advocacy effort to revoke COVID-19 legislation that undermine fundamental rights rights at work and reduce pension contributions. Central Unitaria de Trabajadores de Colombia (CUT), the largest and most prominent trade union confederation will together with the Danish Trade Union Development Agency (DTDA) implement the project in Colombia. The intervention will address the effects of COVID-19 related legislation (Presidential Decree 1174) and its implications on fundamental trade union rights such as union busting, persecution, harassment and assassinations of trade unionists and the need to rebuild the trade union power in the wake of mass dismissals and deregulation of employment conditions.
