Our annual report for 2017 provides an overview of the work that REDRESS undertook in over 37 countries affecting approximately one thousand individual torture survivors from 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017. Much of our progress has been made in the face of increasing global and national challenges to the eradication of torture, including the international resurgence of nationalistic and xenophobic regimes, the protracted continuation of various armed conflicts, rising hostility to NGO activity, and the entrenchment of ever more extreme anti-terrorism policies. Despite this, REDRESS has continued to fight for justice and accountability on behalf of our clients this year, aided by new partnerships with lawyers, civil society groups, prosecution services and academics around the world.
