At Impact Litigation, we are dedicated to the defence of human rights, with a particular focus on victims' rights.
Human rights Law serves as the legal framework that upholds and enforces fundamental rights and freedoms. It encompasses a diverse range of legal principles and norms designed to ensure that individuals are treated with fairness, equality, and respect. At its core, human rights law acts as a powerful tool for justice, accountability, and the protection of vulnerable populations.
We represent victims of international crimes and terrorism before domestic and international courts.
In addition, Impact Litigation works on a consultancy basis with international organizations, such as the United Nations, to enhance, foster and protect the rights of victims. We also work with the Office of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Sexual Violence in Conflict (OSRSG-SVC) on the implementation of the Model Legislative Provisions and Guidance on Investigation and Prosecution of Conflict-Related Sexual Violence.
Impact Litigation is dedicated to working with national and international civil society to advocate for human rights.
