What We Do
RAID exposes corporate wrongdoing, environmental harm and human rights abuse. As an innovative UK-based NGO, we partner with those harmed to hold companies to account. Through rigorous investigation, advocacy and the law, we seek to strengthen regulation of business and bring justice for those most impacted by corporate misconduct.
Few organisations do what RAID does. Our work pushes the boundaries of corporate accountability. We conduct field research and forensic desk research at a level of detail that is difficult to refute and helps concretely advance access to remedy. RAID operates in a niche area of the business and human rights space, testing new and inventive approaches. We have a proven track record in delivering ground-breaking impact.
RAID works with those whose human rights have been violated, including local communities, individuals and workers, to secure justice. For those harmed, obtaining remedy in local courts, in legal jurisdictions where the companies are based, or through complaints mechanisms, can seem impossible. We seek to change that, working hand-in-hand with human rights defenders and civil society groups based in the global South.
Promoting access to justice through a network of law firms and legal experts to provide judicial and non-judicial remedies.
Engaging with international efforts for stronger regulation of companies.
Forensic corporate research into company operations, structures and financing.
Providing a basis to bring cases in courts, or seek redress through complaints mechanisms or regulatory channels.
Extensive field investigations to expose and report on corporate abuses.
