When you neeed to do redirect and request object is not available, you can do it with exception.

Put exception handler somewhere request is available, for example to middleware or ModelAdmin.

Raise exception, where request is not available.

class Redirect(Exception):
    def __init__(self, url):
        self.url = url

# where request is not:

raise Redirect(reverse('someurl'))

# redirect handler, where request is:

from django.http import HttpResponseRedirect
try:
    return something(request, ...)
except Redirect, r:
    return HttpResponseRedirect(r.url)
