The Civil Liberties Trust is a registered charity that works closely with Liberty to promote human rights and civil liberties through research, policy work, litigation, education and advice.
JRCT makes a contribution towards the core costs of the Civil Liberties Trust’s work to promote the Human Rights Act and the universal rights contained within it, ensuring that these do not become contingent on citizenship or other selective status; to resist discrimination and dehumanising of refugees and immigrants; to defend the right to privacy as essential to human dignity; and to question unsafe and unfair counter-terrorism policy. This is a cross-cutting grant as the work directly relates to the priorities of three programmes: Rights and Justice, Peace and Security and Power and Accountability.
