Susi Bascon, Director, PBI UK

She worked for the Colombia project and spent a year as a PBI volunteer in Mexico, and has been running the PBI UK office since 1998. She says, “As a field volunteer I was deeply touched by the strength of spirit and courage of the human rights defenders I had the privilege to accompany…their commitment to justice went often beyond the fear of losing their own lives".
