The Docket pursues perpetrators and enablers of international crimes through the courts and supports survivors as they seek justice. We gather evidence for investigations to be triggered and to represent victims and their families.
Crucially, we also ask whether survivors want to pursue justice and support them to take part in the process in a meaningful way. At the heart of all of our work is justice for survivors and accountability for perpetrators.
Picking our Projects
In selecting cases, The Docket considers the following factors...
- Gravity, nature, and scale of abuse
- Potential to generate evidence for criminal prosecution or trigger other legal or regulatory action against those responsible
- Feasibility of collecting sufficient evidence through field investigations and other means (e.g. in light of access and security considerations)
- Availability of judicial forum for accountability
- Survivors’ willingness to pursue justice and their ability to meaningfully participate in the process
- The Docket’s resources, available expertise, and value-added
