    1. Do a closure stating that:

      • One of the functions of human rights is to see that everyone fulfills their life project. The obstacles to achieve this are human rights violations. Favorable conditions are the expression of the realization of human rights.
      • In this context, protection means to ensure, without discrimination, the rights of people affected, contributing to the restoration of their life projects.
      • Furthermore, such protection is related to the reduction of situations that threaten the dignity, freedom and equality of people and, therefore, the exercise of their rights.
      • Protection in this sense is understood as contributing to these affected people and communities to develop their capacities, it involves the restitution of the exercise of rights attached to an immediate, short, medium and long term process, reducing conditions leading to increased risk for the violation of rights.
