    Mission / brief description:

    Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association is a Palestinian non-governmental, civil institution that works to support Palestinian political prisoners held in Israeli and Palestinian prisons. Addameer offers free legal aid to political prisoners, advocates their rights at the national and international level, and works to end torture and other violations of prisoners' rights through monitoring, legal procedures, and solidarity campaigns.

    Addameer believes in the importance of building a free and democratic Palestinian society based on justice, equality, rule of law, and respect for human rights within the larger framework of the right to self-determination. Our work is based on our belief in the universality of human rights. Addameer’s advocacy and accountability efforts via UN forums and in close work with international human rights organizations have been instrumental in the current paradigm shift towards discussions of a total Israeli apartheid regime.
