A legal action non-governmental organisation, Reprieve investigates, litigates and campaigns regarding human rights abuses.
Registered in England and Wales, Reprieve works with people who have suffered human rights abuses, such as defending those held without charge or facing the death penalty. The group advocates for policy change, working with policy-makers and legislators to ensure governments uphold commitments. It also works on strategic litigation and works on creative projects to raise public awareness of issues. Issues Reprieve covers include drone strikes, the death penalty, torture, unlawful detention and Guantánamo Bay prison camp.
Note that while Reprieve is based in the UK, it works globally on cases including Saudi Arabia, Guantánamo Bay and the United States. We have updated our database accordingly. Please get in touch if we have missed an area Reprieve works in.
