The mission of REDRESS is to obtain justice for survivors of torture; hold accountable governments and individuals who perpetrate torture; and develop a means of ensuring compliance with international standards and securing remedies for victims. They pursue their mission through casework, advocacy, and capacity building. REDRESS has been actively documenting and acting upon the situation in Sudan since 2003. They have a wealth of resources on issues of sexual violence and are part of a joint initiative on criminal law reform in Sudan. They are based in London. The Project for Criminal Law Reform in Sudan has been initiated by REDRESS and Khartoum Center for Human Rights and Environmental Development (KCHRED). After the closure of KCHRED, the Sudanese Organisation for Research and Development (SORD) has joined the initiative as new project partners. It is a collaborative effort, with community groups and civil society organisations playing a major role as stakeholders to identify priorities and implement activities. To this end, a number of groups from all over the country have formed a network, which is driven by local and thematic focal points, i.e. individuals who work on the issues locally or on a specific subject, such as sexual violence.
