RAID’s work depends on meticulous research. We track down information in company records and other documents, and relate it to testimony gathered on the ground. This combination provides a unique perspective on what companies do and how it affects local people.

RAID informs governments, and international & industry bodies, highlighting abuses and areas where progress is needed in development and enforcement of regulation to improve companies’ human rights and environmental track records. Briefings

RAID's casework brings together document research, witness testimonies collected at local level, advocacy, advice and media campaigning. 

RAID's research reports have addressed the need to improve companies’ operations, oversight and regulation.
