Governance and Reform
Our work promotes social change and voice and accountability for all. Key areas include institutional development, justice and the rule of law, civil society and economic development.
This DFID-funded project, managed by the British Council, is developing an effective and accountable justice sector to meet the needs of the poor and vulnerable. It aims to improve access to justice for the poor; enhance respect for human rights; increase the empowerment of women; and strengthen the participation of civil society.
Active Citizens is a non-profit programme that promotes community cohesion and improvement through civic engagement or volunteering in around 30 countries. It aims to increase the contribution of community leaders towards achieving sustainable development both locally and globally. It also encourages peer-to-peer relations across cultural, geographic and political boundaries via a lively online social network of participants, as well as occasional international exchange visits.
