International Bridges to Justice (IBJ) is an independent, non-profit and non-governmental organization founded in 2000 that strives to protect due process and achieve fair trials for the accused throughout the world. In countries where governmental commitment to human rights principles has, as of yet, failed to meet its practical goal, IBJ fills the gap between human rights legislation and domestic implementation.
IBJ is dedicated to ensuring the basic legal rights of ordinary citizens.
