Guantánamo Bay Observer Program

Since 2013, the Pacific Council has held official NGO observer status with the Office of Military Commissions at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba (GTMO).

We are one of a select group of organizations with that designation, alongside Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, and the American Bar Association. In this role we send member representatives with relevant expertise to observe select proceedings at GTMO and report back.

The Pacific Council’s GTMO Task Force works with observers and policymakers to translate findings and recommendations into policy.

Members with legal expertise or other relevant background are invited to represent the Pacific Council as an official observer. Interested? Let us know: trips@pacificcouncil.org.
