Last week on OpenGlobalRights, Devandy Ario Putro discussed how best to defend LGBTI people amidst rising levels of intolerance in Indonesia.

Finally, Anna Koob and Sarah Tansey discussed newly launched data that maps out trends in human rights funding, showing how such patterns can make advocacy more effective.
