The Detention Justice Forum (‘DJF’) is a coalition of civil society organisations working to ensure that the rights and well-being of all detainees are respected and upheld, as enshrined under the South African Constitution, laws, and international human rights norms and standards. Our membership includes non-governmental organisations, community organisations, lawyers, and academics with varied individual focuses and degrees of engagement in the penal and broader detention and human-rights sectors. Member organisations’ foci span from direct service provision and (former and current) detainee support and empowerment, to advocacy and policy development.
