Our mission is, “To help raise public confidence in democracy by working for the advancement of human rights, rule of law, access to justice, transparency and accountability which are the hallmarks of modern democratic societies”. We work mainly through research, publications, advocacy and networking.
Our non-profit centre was founded on the 16th June, 2006 but only became operational in 2007 when our president, Prof. Yemi Akinseye-George , SAN completed his term as Special Assistant to the Honourable Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice.
