Defend, strengthen and empower...

We want a world in which rights are realised and people are free. But civil society and civic space are under serious threat from attacks, harassment and censorship.

Open Briefing is a vital part of the response. We defend, strengthen and empower those on the frontlines of civil society by keeping them and their partners safe and secure online and in the real world.

Our international team provides high-impact training, consultancy and retained support across safety and security, digital security, and wellbeing and resilience, complemented by a unique intelligence and research capability. No other non-profit provides this comprehensive, holistic approach.

Since 2011, we have supported a wide range of social change agents around the world, from multinational humanitarian agencies working in violent environments to small human rights groups and individual environmental defenders and LGBT+ activists living under repression and surveillance.
