ActionAid is a global movement of people working together to further human rights and defeat poverty for all.

Just & Democratic Governance

The work of our governance theme centres on two broad goals with specific objectives to build citizen capacity, popularize the use of human rights based and people centred approach to governance, mobilise and strengthen social movements and other organisations of the poor and the marginalised to claim their rights. The theme works to ensure accountability of national and local government institutions, public sector organisations and civil society to deliver on the rights of citizens and peoples.

ActionAid engages regionally and internationally on issues such as reform of regional and international institutions, trade justice, debt and transitional justice.
