Justice for Survivors

Thousands of people around the world are being displaced by war, seeing their family members killed, and their communities and cultures ransacked for profit that is then funneled into buying yet more weapons and funding armed groups. We work to expose the corruption that fuels grave human rights violations. The Docket team gathers evidence to trigger prosecutions and civil actions against those involved in international crimes and represents victims in their pursuit of justice. 

At our inaugural Albie Awards, we presented iAct with our Justice for Survivors award for its work alongside survivors of genocide and other mass atrocities. iACT worked with the Clooney Foundation for Justice to interview survivors from Darfur, Sudan, who have been trapped in refugee camps in Chad for over a decade. Using this evidence, Amal Clooney represented over 100 survivors in a trial of a militia leader at the International Criminal Court.

Defending the Victims

Justice means fighting for the rights of survivors to see those responsible for the death and destruction that forced them from their homes held accountable, whether it is in their own communities, through domestic courts, or on the international stage. The return of cultural artifacts looted and sold for profit is also an essential part of making sure communities ravaged by war are able to rebuild. 


Pursuing the Perpetrators

We created the Docket to make justice for survivors of mass atrocities a reality.

Armed groups, international corporations, and oppressive governments all play a part in perpetuating the corruption that gives way to human rights abuses. Pursuing international groups that might be out of reach of communities struggling to survive is an essential step on the road to true justice.
