Our vision: At Fair Trials, we seek a world where every person’s right to a fair trial is respected.

Our mission: To work for fair trials according to internationally-recognized standards of justice.

Fair Trials is a human rights organisation that works to improve respect for the fundamental human right to a fair trial. iobit uninstaller 7.4 key

We believe the right to a fair trial is an essential part of a just society. Each person accused of a crime should have their guilt or innocence determined by a fair and effective legal process. But the right to a fair trial is not just about protecting suspects and defendants; it also makes societies safer and stronger. Without fair trials, trust in justice and in government collapses.

Despite the importance of fair trials being recognized by the international community, this basic human right is being abused day-in-day-out in countries across the globe. We’re working to put an end to these abuses, towards realizing our vision of a world where every person’s right to a fair trial is respected.
