Description

The Rendition Project is a collaborative research initiative run by Prof Ruth Blakeley at the University of Sheffield (and previously, the University of Kent) and Dr Sam Raphael at the University of Westminster. The Rendition Project is at the forefront of efforts to investigate and understand the use of rendition, secret detention and torture by the CIA and its allies in the "war on terror". Through this website users can access:

- The most comprehensive account to date of the fate and whereabouts of each of those detained and tortured within the programme
- The world's largest public database of rendition flights by CIA aircraft
- Detailed analysis of more than 60 renditions of individuals to secret detention and torture
- Material on the complex web of companies which helped operate a network of rendition aircraft and secret prisons

Our major report, CIA Torture Unredacted, published in July 2019, presents the combined findings from a four-year joint investigation by The Rendition Project and The Bureau of Investigative Journalism. It is, without doubt, the most detailed account of the CIA torture programme ever published. The report can be accessed for free on this site, and is supported by other material contained here.
