Day of the Endangered Lawyer 2017

24 January 2017 marked the seventh Day of the Endangered Lawyer. While this year’s focus will be on China, we also want to take this day as an opportunity to highlight the situation for lawyers in the countries where PBI works.

Lawyers challenging those responsible for human rights violations pay an extremely high price - they may have their work obstructed, be followed, watched, harassed, subjected to spurious prosecutions, killed or ‘forcibly disappeared’.

Field volunteer experiences

Field volunteers with Peace Brigades International come from many different countries and backgrounds. What they share is a strong commitment to nonviolence and a belief in the power of ordinary people to create a more peaceful and just world.

If you are interested in volunteering overseas with PBI, the stories from former field volunteers from the UK give you a chance to find out about volunteering from the people who've been in the same position as you.

Our supporters

We would like to thank the many organizations and individuals who give their valuable support to PBI UK, including:
