- United Kingdom
- REDRESS is a UK NGO that was founded in 1992 by Keith Carmichael, a survivor of gross human rights violations. Their mission is to seek justice and reparation for survivors of torture, to combat impunity for governments and individuals who perpetrate torture, and to develop and promote compliance with international standards. They do so by bringing legal cases on behalf of individual survivors worldwide, and advocating for better laws to provide effective reparations. Their cases respond to torture as an individual crime in national and international law, as a civil wrong with individual responsibility, and as a human rights violation with state responsibility.
