The idea of Defender Center showed in 2014 as an initial gesture from some elite Libyan expatriates jurists; as an attempt to find a space for Jurists outside their country, especially with the outbreak of armed conflict in several cities in Libya, plus, a lot of defenders suffered and faced attacks and abuses, from harassment to assassinations. The organisation began its activities in late 2014 and was registered in early 2016.
Defender Center for Human Rights acts as a focal point in Tunisia for all human rights defenders, activists and media workers, supporting them and their institutions technically and logistically.
