In 2014 five prominent human rights defenders were arrested in Azerbaijan because of their human rights work. They represent only a handful of those who are in pre-trial detention or have received lengthy prison sentences as the authorities engage in a relentless crackdown on civil society.

Rasul Jafarov is Chairman of the Human Rights Club, and the coordinator of the Art for Democracy campaign, a platform to improve human rights awareness in Azerbaijan. Rasul was behind “Sing for Democracy” during the Eurovision Song Contest in 2012.
