Ensaaf: Working to end impunity and achieve justice for mass state crimes in India

Description:

Ensaaf works to end impunity and achieve justice for mass state crimes in India, with a focus on Punjab, by documenting abuses, bringing perpetrators to justice, and organizing survivors.

 

Ensaaf is working to:

  • Document the tens of thousands of disappearances and extrajudicial executions perpetrated in Punjab, as well as the systems of abuse;
  • Hold the primary architects of these abuses accountable; and
  • Organize survivors on the issues of truth, justice, and reparations.

Ensaaf is currently focusing on Punjab because Punjab presents a unique and timely opportunity to challenge systematic impunity in India. For example, key cases have reached higher courts that will set national precedent on human rights norms. Once Ensaaf achieves its objectives, it will work to replicate its model and successes in other regions of India.
