EG Justice has quickly established itself as a leader in providing independent analysis, enabling an informed debate, and offering practical recommendations for shaping the future of Equatorial Guinea.
EG Justice was launched in 2008 in the United States (rather than in Equatorial Guinea, as human rights organizations are not permitted to operate within the country) to promote human rights, the rule of law, transparency, and civic participation to build a just Equatorial Guinea. Bottom-up change in Equatorial Guinea cannot be expected to happen overnight or in a vacuum. This is why we work closely with activists in Equatorial Guinea and collaborate with international human rights organizations to promote reform in the country.
EG Justice works to achieve long-term improvements in the areas of human rights, rule of law, transparency, and civic participation in Equatorial Guinea by:
~ providing impartial and thorough research and analysis on the country
~ engaging in outreach to the public, particularly within Equatorial Guinea
~ creating strategic partnerships with relevant organizations and institutions
~ conducting advocacy with intergovernmental organizations, companies, and other institutions
~ regularly convening the EG Justice Policy Roundtable, a vital forum for civil society, governments,
companies, academics, and other institutions to exchange ideas and propose solutions to problems
that impact the people of Equatorial Guinea.
EG Justice’s partners have included the Open Society Justice Initiative (OSJI), Human Rights Watch, the Publish What You Pay coalition, the Center for Economic and Social Rights, Asociación Pro-Derechos Humanos de España, Oxfam America, and various local partners in Equatorial Guinea.
