Description

MISSION The Center for Justice & Accountability (CJA) is an international human rights organization dedicated to deterring torture and other severe human rights abuses around the world and advancing the rights of survivors to seek truth, justice and reparations.

CJA uses litigation to hold perpetrators individually accountable for human rights abuses, develop human rights law, and advance the rule of law in countries transitioning from periods of abuse.

WHAT WE DO CJA is part of the movement for global justice for those who have been tortured or have suffered other severe human rights abuses. CJA was founded on the principle, first used during the Nuremberg trials after World War II, that certain crimes are so egregious that they represent offenses against all humankind. These crimes include genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and torture. CJA believes that perpetrators of such violations should be brought to justice wherever they are found.

CJA uses two civil laws to hold perpetrators of international human rights abuses accountable in the United States: the Alien Tort Statute and the Torture Victim Protection Act. We also pursue criminal human rights cases before the Spanish National Court which has initiated investigations into abuses around the world. The most famous of these cases, against Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet, represented the first time that a former head of state was prosecuted on the victims' initiative. All of CJA's cases have unleashed great hopes in civil society for justice and accountability.

CJA has pioneered a survivor-centered approach to the quest for justice that combines legal representation with medical and psycho-social services in order to empower and heal torture survivors and their communities.
