CAGE (previously known as CagePrisoners) was set up in October 2003 as a Human rights NGO with the purpose of raising awareness of the plight of the prisoners at Guantanamo Bay and other detainees held as part of the War on Terror. Since then, as the War on Terror grew, CagePrisoners became CAGE; an independent advocacy organisation with a broader scope, working to empower communities impacted by the War on Terror. Through our work, CAGE has developed extensive networks with former prisoners, their families, lawyers, activists and the media. Our strengths and experience makes us unique in the way we operate, we: – work closely with survivors of abuse and mistreatment across the globe, supporting them to access due process for their case. – carry out cutting edge research, regularly documenting the abuse of due process and the erosion of the rule of law in the context of the War on Terror. – provide a voice for survivors of the war on terror, challenging the dominant narrative of suspect communities and the perceived threat of terrorism. – empower communities through workshop, events and seminars highlighting and campaigning against state policies.
