The Accountability Unit is an independent NGO which advances conflict related gender based rights through litigation, advocacy, research and mentoring. We work with partners in countries where there is an urgent need to legally support women, girls and others facing severe human rights violations because of their gender.

Our vision is the abolition of conflict related sexual violence and gender based harm. With that in mind we seek to: obtain legal redress for survivors of gender based rights violations in conflict settings; hold to account perpetrators of conflict related sexual violence; and advance gender mainstreaming and awareness of gender based rights.
