In partnership with Crude Accountability, GW’s Central Asia Program is pleased to host the public launch of:

Dangerous Work: A Study of Reprisals Against Environmental Defenders in the Former Soviet Union and the United States

Crude Accountability, in partnership with the EcoForum of NGOs of Kazakhstan and Fractracker (based in Pittsburgh, PA), is proud to announce the public launch of a publication, Dangerous Work, which reports on reprisals against environmental defenders in the US and in countries of Eurasia. Environmental defenders are under increasing threat around the world, including in the regions highlighted in our report. In 2018, 164 environmental defenders lost their lives around the world; many more suffered harassment, threats, and violence.

Dangerous Work is a compilation of stories of reprisals against environmental defenders, describing the multitude of ways that governments and corporations and their watchdogs retaliate against activists, particularly those working in the extractive sector. It also describes the disturbing trends of increasing threats to environmental defenders in each of the countries highlighted in the report.
