The New Tactics in Human Rights Project, "led by a diverse group of international organizations and practitioners, promotes tactical innovation and strategic thinking within the international human rights community. Strategic and tactical thinking, long used by business and military strategists, is an effective means for the human rights movement to expand options and possibilities of what can be done. Innovative tactics are emerging that may more effectively advance human rights and end persistent human rights problems. Many innovations have been valuable, yet are not well known outside their regions.

"The New Tactics in Human Rights project promotes the use and sharing of as wide a range of tactics as possible. The project is coordinated by the Center for Victims of Torture and grew out of its experience as a creator of new tactics and a treatment center that also advocates for the protection of human rights from a unique position—one of healing and reclaiming civic leadership. We hope you will join us in developing, using and promoting strategic and tactical thinking within the broad human rights community." [1]
