The Rendition Project website is designed to act as a hub for accessing publicly-available data relating to the global system of rendition and secret detention. Work on the site will continue throughout 2012, and will eventually feature:

A comprehensive timeline of key events;

Detailed profiles and analysis of detention facilities used by the US and its partners, integrating all public data on their construction, location and operation;

Detainee profiles, which will bring together available evidence on their detention, movement and treatment in the system;

The world’s largest public access database of flights by CIA aircraft connected to rendition, fully searchable, and based upon the compilation of all public source information about the renditions programme;

Profiles on the aircraft used to move detainees from site to site, and the companies which were often involved in operating these aircraft;

Access to the key primary documents made available by those researchers that have worked to uncover the renditions programme, including prisoner lists, flight logs, and land purchase agreements. Many of these have become available through the use of Freedom of Information legislation, and this website is designed to become a clearing-house for the information released through these efforts;

An extensive library of governmental and intergovernmental reports and inquiries in relation to rendition and secret detention, as well as major investigative reports by NGOs and others working in the field.

Our website is designed to complement, but extend beyond, the excellent projects which have focused on specific elements of the system, such as detentions in Guantanamo Bay, or the declassified memos authorising the use of ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ (the so-called ‘torture memos’).
