2021 Global Human Rights Litigation Report
Strategic human rights litigation seeks to use the authority of the law to advocate for social change on behalf of individuals whose voices are otherwise not heard.
This report surveys more than 60 cases that the Justice Initiative has brought in recent years, including litigation across several continents in response to the devastating COVID-19 pandemic.
From securing the release of a declassified U.S. intelligence report that established responsibility for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, to protecting freedoms of expression and association in Hungary, to seeking damages from the harm caused by mismanaging Ebola relief funds in Sierra Leone, the Justice Initiative continues to be on the forefront of cutting edge legal action that fights injustice and upholds the values of an open society.
