The International Peace Observers Network (IPON) is an independent, non-intervening, and non-profit organization founded in Germany. We, the observers, accompany human rights defenders (HRD), we monitor and inform about their human rights situation.
With this approach, we pursue following aims:
1. accompanied HRDs are able to undertake their work free from threats, violence and repressions;
2. state authorities execute their duty to protect human rights, and especially the HRDs;
3. human rights are respected and secured.
IPON works together with patners from the regions of Luzon, Mindanao and Negros in the Philippines.
