Policy And Research

We advocate for policy change to bring about an end to the death penalty, torture, unlawful detention, and unlawful lethal drone strikes.

All too often, Governments which oppose these abuses in principle end up enabling them in practice – for example by supporting death penalty prosecutions overseas or sharing intelligence obtained under torture. We work with policy-makers and legislators to help end these abuses, and ensure Governments uphold their commitments.
