IPRT is an advocacy organisation.
Advocacy means speaking up on behalf of people who may not have a voice themselves. IPRT speaks up for everyone in the penal system, with particular emphasis on promoting prisoners’ access to basic human rights.
Our advocacy is based on research and evidence-led policies. We work hard to make sure that those who are making policy-decisions are aware of and informed by our research. We focus on the key areas of:
- human rights in prison (prison conditions)
- imprisonment as a last resort (reducing imprisonment)
- youth justice (early intervention, prevention, diversion)
- combating social injustice (building better and safer communities)
Your involvement can greatly help us to convince policy decision-makers that penal reform has wider support. To get involved in our campaigns and lobbying, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
