Focus Areas

Across the world, national security measures are increasingly being used to silence dissent, target vulnerable and marginalised communities, and close civic and democratic space. In parallel, the obstacles for victims to access justice have significantly increased as Governments hide behind the well-worn cloak of national security and at the same time are systematically dismantling the hard-fought for protections in the form of laws (international, regional and domestic), institutions (including judicial institutions) and safeguards (including Parliamentary oversight of executive action). To address these trends, and advocate for rights-based approach to national security policies, Rights and Security International works on the following focus areas.
