The world is witnessing the erosion of good governance and the rise of populism and extremism and with it a sharp increase in human right violations and violence. Good governance is central to preventing corruption and the rise of non-democratic regimes. The aspiration of people from all continents to live in peace and stand against injustice is no longer possible. This plenary session aims to identify and call for urgent actions that government and international organisations must implement in order to support citizens, activists, and journalists who fight for their rights and the rights of their people and face threats, coercion or worst.
