The New Tactics Project has strengthened the work of thousands of human rights defenders and organizations worldwide. Partners and participants consistently report that the tools, resources and methodologies make a significant difference in the way they approach their work. Human rights defenders in countries as diverse as Uzbekistan, Cambodia and Albania credit the project with making key contributions to successful human rights initiatives in those nations.
In 2009, CVT began building on these accomplishments by launching an initiative to strengthen the capacity of human rights defenders in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. In 2011, New Tactics opened an office in Amman, Jordan to create a virtual network of human rights activists across the region and train human rights defenders, particularly in Egypt and Tunisia, on the New Tactics strategy and tactics tools and methodology.
