  • When we identify injustice and human rights abuses, we alert the worlds media and lobby policy makers and global justice institutions for change.
  • We work with victims, their families and the international community to resolve individual cases of injustice and human rights violations and with the international community to effect lasting policy reform and change.
  • We offer support to those suffering injustice and human rights abuses, and their families.

The Detained group includes Detained, Detained International, Detained Abroad and Detained Middle East.

We believe that everyone is entitled to justice. Our legal constitution is that of a charitable organisation, we are not a limited company, we do not charge for our help, we never will. We are not interested in profits or fees, we are interested in helping as many victims of injustice in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates and the Middle East as possible.

We are funded by a combination of charitable grants and donations. We do not receive core funding from any government and are not paid for any of the assistance we provide. Detained is governed by a board of volunteer trustees, responsible for the charity’s strategic direction and financial management.

Founded by David Haigh, a prominent Human right and LGTBQ advocate, after he left Detained in Dubai at the end of 2018 so that he could focus on helping victims of injustice across the Middle East and on a pro bono basis.
