Episode 11: The NGO–Human Rights Sanctions Link

Governments pursuing human rights sanctions increasingly rely on evidence collected and submitted by NGOs on the ground.

Charlie Loudon, international legal advisor at REDRESS – an organisation which fights torture – joins Emil Dall in offering insights on the vital role NGOs have in identifying states or entities that should be sanctioned, and why this matters not just for policy, but also for the victims.

This week’s ‘In the News’ includes CFCS’s Emil Dall and Associate Fellow Samantha Sheen.
