Civil Society

We believe that in order for education to flourish it needs to be underpinned by a strong civil society. Our main areas of interest are in transparency, accountability, anti-corruption and good governance, but we are also interested in, for example, human rights, drones, investigative journalism, the rule of law, democracy, citizenship, equality, and the misuse of natural resources.
