INTERIGHTS, the International Centre for the Legal Protection of Human Rights, works to promote respect for human rights through the use of law. It does so by providing legal expertise to lawyers, judges, human rights defenders and other partners concerning international and comparative human rights law. The main focus of its work is strategic litigation, bringing or supporting cases in critical areas where there is either a potential for human rights standards to be developed or where existing standards are under threat.
