What we do

We are experts in the police, security, and military equipment used by people around the world to commit human rights abuses.

We track the development, procurement, trade, and use of weapons, and push for stronger controls at each stage.

We work to protect the rights to protest and to live free from torture.

Our research exposes human rights violations committed in places of detention as well as during policing on the streets.

We are working to share our research and our recommendations with as many people and organisations as possible and to support survivors in their search for justice.

We rely on the generous support of our funders. If you would like to support our work please click here.
