Protection Approaches was established to fill a gap in the UK’s third sector, where attention on the specific threats posed by mass atrocities had been lagging behind civil society endeavours elsewhere.
Protection Approaches defends the rights of peoples around the world who are violently targeted because of their identity. We work with decision makers and decision shapers in order to strengthen prediction, prevention, and protection approaches to identity-based violence worldwide.
Our work is guided by international human rights law, humanitarian law and respect for human life and dignity.

All our work at Protection Approaches is guided by our theory of change, which sets out the processes and developments that need to occur in order to achieve our vision of a world free from identity-based violence. All activities and programmes we undertake must fit within our theory of change, ensuring that everything we do is designed to move us closer to our vision.

We are committed to our mission of defending people at risk from identity-based violence worldwide.
We recognise that reaching our vision of a world free from identity-based violence is a longterm commitment and will be an incremental process, building upon the significant achievements of past human rights champions and in partnership with the diverse and vibrant global movement of decision makers and decision shapers.
We are actively committed to ensuring that all our work has real and meaningful impact. We use outcome mapping to monitor and evaluate our programmes and our own organisational development. This means we start with our vision of a world without identity-based violence and assess what solutions are needed before determining how and where to focus our activities. Our theory of change stems from this method.
Our belief in human equality drives not only our approach and programme work but all aspects of our organisation.
