Fair Trials International (FTI) works for fair trials according to international standards of justice and defends the rights of those facing charges in a country other than their own.
FTI pursues its mission by providing individual legal assistance through its expert casework practice. It also addresses the root causes of injustice through broader research and campaigning and builds local legal capacity through targeted training, mentoring and network activities.
FTI is not limited to a particular geographic region, though recognises that it must match its casework, campaigning and capacity-building activities to areas where its limited resources can be deployed to greatest effect.
