Justice &
Rule of Law

In a region known for its persistent instability and volatility, the protection of basic rights, freedoms and liberties of its citizens is an ongoing battle. There is an urgent need to ensure rule of law and equitably distributed access to justice in West Africa, particularly among marginalized groups such as women, youth and persons living with disabilities. Our Foundation seeks to help ensure adequate protection and enforcement of human rights by facilitating access to fair and independent justice. We use several mechanisms to help advance the inclusion and legal empowerment of West Africans – from supporting pro bono initiatives and legal aid in Nigeria, to contributing to the ongoing transitional justice processes and truth and reconciliation initiatives in countries such as Cote d’Ivoire, Guinea, Liberia and Mali, among others.
