Impact Litigation

Defense of human rights activists threatened by
authoritarian regimes.

The Impact Litigation program provides international legal representation to prisoners of conscience whose cases are emblematic examples of the brutality of dictatorship. HRF’s team of international attorneys litigates on behalf of these courageous individuals before international courts and semi-judicial bodies, such as the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention.
