Introduction and methodology

The report is presented by the human rights organisation ALQST, the International Federation for Human Rights Leagues (FIDH) and its member organisation, the Gulf Centre for Human Rights (GCHR). It is based on the report “Saudi Arabia – Condemned to silence, the situation of women human rights defenders” published in January 2018 by the Observatory for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders, a joint programme of FIDH and the World Organisation Against Torture (OMCT). The Observatory carried out a study based on in-depth documentary research conducted on Saudi news and institutional websites and more than a dozen long-distance interviews held from April to July 2017 with members of Saudi civil society - activists, researchers and journalists - living in different towns and cities in the country or abroad, to obtain information directly from the field.
