Clive Stafford Smith is a human rights lawyer and founder of Reprieve, an organisation that provides legal support to low-income prisoners accused of the most extreme crimes. Based in the US for twenty-six years, he now works from the UK where he continues to defend prisoners on Death Row, and challenges the continued incarceration of those held in secret prisons around the world. His book Bad Men (shortlisted for the 2008 Orwell Prize) described this campaign and Injustice (shortlisted for the 2013 Orwell Prize) described the many flaws in the US death penalty process. Alongside other awards, in 2000 he received an OBE for humanitarian services.
