Kate Higham

Kate Higham is Head of Reprieve’s Assassinations Project.

Kate leads Reprieve’s Assassinations Project, which aims to prevent the unlawful use of drone strikes and assassinations by the US and their allies (in the UK and elsewhere) in pursuit of the global War on Terror. The Assassinations Project supports victims of illegal drone strikes and their families in their search for justice. The Project also assists people who fear that they may have been placed on a US “kill list”, and who are seeking to challenge that listing. Kate also leads Reprieve’s death penalty work in the South Asia region.

Kate first joined Reprieve in 2011. In the six years since then she has worked on projects and cases from across the organisation. Prior to taking on her current role as Head of the Assassinations Project, Kate led Reprieve’s death penalty work in the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia.
