About

Pakistan Impunity Watch is a non-profit human rights organization, seeking to promote accountability for past atrocities, notably in countries emerging from a violent past. We analyses, advocate, and partner to help local communities seek accountability for gross human rights abuses and for systemic injustice. In doing so, we focus on victims, survivors, and the most marginalized. We seek to strengthen their involvement in justice processes, and to put our skills, resources, and networks at the service of all who fight impunity, working directly with local civil society and victim groups.  In our work, we adopt a bottom-up, participatory, and context-sensitive approach, by which we support victims and survivors to exercise their rights.

Although we work on transitional justice issues, we also work for justice in situations where there is no moment of transition, or where the nominal transition is long past. We work closely with local organizations, using a participative and context-sensitive approach in which we support and partner with particularly vulnerable marginalized groups. Impunity has many aspects, and so our work is legal, social, and political. We advocate for politically-informed justice strategies.
