International Bridges to Justice
Every day throughout the world, citizens are arbitrarily detained, tortured and denied access to a fair trial. In many developing countries, governments have demonstrated their commitment to human rights by signing international conventions and implementing domestic laws to safeguard citizen rights. Unfortunately, many of the new laws remain unenforced due to lack of trained lawyers, resources and awareness.
In countries where human rights are often violated, awareness is a crucial issue. Often, detainees have little knowledge of their basic rights, such as the right to an attorney, the right to be protected from cruel treatment and the right to a fair trial. Our Advisement of Rights posters are printed in both national and regional languages, and distributed in legal aid offices, police stations and jails. Your donation will directly contribute to raising human rights awareness among ordinary citizens as well as impoverished, often discriminated minorities, and among the legal authorities responsible for implementing these laws.
