Areas of Work

Civil & Political Rights

The Civil and Political Rights program aims to ensure the promotion, respect, and protection of a wide range of civil and political rights, including freedom of association and movement; freedom of expression and access to information; right to life, liberty, and security; right to equal protection before the law and access to effective judicial systems; right to participation in political life and freedom from discrimination and torture.

Through research/investigation and advocacy, effective promotion, and partnership with stakeholders, we advance civil and political rights as well as accountability for violations – a critical pillar for the rule of law and democratic society.
