Promoting Good Governance.

The Voices for Change, Africa project is implemented by the International Centre for Investigative Reporting-ICIR and Institute for War and Peace Reporting-IWPR, aims to build the capacity of human rights defenders, civil society groups and journalists to work together to effectively raise public awareness and launch robust advocacy campaigns related to human rights violations that are crimes under international law and that remain investigated and unprosecuted, such as extrajudicial executions and unlawful killings, forced disappearances, sexual violence, and torture and ill treatment of suspects and detainees. The project will build the long-term capacity of human rights defenders, journalists and Civil Society Organizations to capture and share information that will engage citizens and pressure decision makers to hold criminal human rights abusers to account.

The long-term goal of this intervention is to increase accountability for criminal human rights violations in Nigeria, and ultimately lead to a reduction in those violations.

The short-term outcome of the project during the grant period are designed to build the capacity of journalists and civil society organizations to create awareness and effective advocacy campaigns around accountability for criminal human rights violations in Nigeria.

The project activities will include roundtable meetings, training of journalists and civil society organization groups respectively, development of investigative reports and  planning and implementing robust related advocacy campaigns

The project is designed to be implemented over a 24-month period
