Strategic Litigation

Women murdered with systematic impunity for their killers. Protesters surveilled and tortured by police. Journalists jailed for speaking truth to power. With authoritarianism on the rise, we collaborate with local partners around the world to confront systematic abuses, often after all else has failed.

Our Approach to Selecting Cases

Our litigation is “strategic” because we bring cases that represent broad issues, cases in which successful outcomes create positive change throughout society, in addition to the relief delivered to a single client. With unique global experience before both the Inter-American and African human rights bodies, as well as the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention and others, we turn to these courts with our partners to protect human rights and achieve justice for entire groups of people, even an entire country or region—often setting new international legal precedent to advance human rights.
