The Docket

The Docket, a new initiative under development at the Clooney Foundation for Justice, aims to ensure that individuals and corporations that are complicit in international crimes face justice. The Docket will work with multi-disciplinary teams that gather and analyze evidence that can trigger prosecutions and civil actions against those who finance and facilitate mass human rights violations. The Docket will also aim to ensure legal representation for victims in cases against those who bankroll war crimes, gross violations of international human rights, and related atrocities.

The Docket will complement the ongoing investigative work of CFJ’s partner The Sentry, which has successfully created teams of investigators and lawyers who follow the money of corrupt leaders and ensure that they are subject to economic sanctions and other tools of financial pressure that cut them off from the international financial system and make it difficult to do business.
