The present report on the Iranian human rights defenders in 2018, is the first report about the condition of human rights defenders that will be published annually by Iran Human Rights (IHR) organization. IHR was able to provide this report with the support of Norwegian Human Rights Fund. The report does not provide any statistics, but seeks to give a picture of the situation by telling the stories of 19 Iranian human rights defenders in Iran. The aim of the report is to attract the attention of the international community to the condition of human rights defenders in Iran. In 2019, Iran’s human rights situation will be reviewed under the framework of Universal Periodic Review (UPR). A list of all UPR recommendations to Iran, addressing human rights defenders in the previous round of UPR, are provided at the end of the report.
