Impunity Watch (not Impunity Watch (Solidaridad)) was launched in October 2007 and "is an interactive website that operates as a law review, message board, and blog; it was created with the objective of giving a voice to people who are silenced. Impunity Watch's mission is to monitor and address horrific human rights abuses and possible situations of impunity. Whether the atrocities committed are acts of discrimination, acts of human trafficking such as the forced labor or sexual exploitation of individuals, the denial of access to food and water, acts of genocide, or other violations of fundamental human rights, those who commit these inhumane acts should be held accountable and brought to justice. Impunity Watch will be in the forefront creating awareness of these tragedies.

Impunity Watch is completely run by students at Syracuse University College of Law. Approximately 40 students act as editors, researchers and reporters, devoting their time and effort toward informing others of human rights abuses being committed and ensuring worldwide awareness of those who receive impunity for their inhumane actions."
