Power At All Cost Report Publication

A Report on the Impact of Coal Mining and Coal Power Generation on Host Communities in Gombe State, Nigeria.

Nigeria has been at cross roads regarding its energy future for a while now. In order for the nation not to allow this crisis to go to waste, it must recognize and appreciate it as an opportunity to capture the high grounds of global advancements. It must use ‘what it has to get what it wants’, while maintaining a strategic contextual balance.

Preventing Atrocities Toolkit

Preventing Atrocities:
A Toolkit of Technical Guidance And Best Practices For Atrocity Prevention
Atrocity crimes – including genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity – which are marked by the large-scale and deliberate targeting of civilians, are violations that particularly offend the collective consciousness and are acts that countries around the globe have agreed to prevent and punish. Unfortunately, notwithstanding international treaty commitments, or the 2005 affirmations by heads of state of their “responsibility to protect” against these offenses, these crimes continue to happen all too often, both during and outside armed conflict.

Para-Legal Training Manual on Improving Women’s Access to Justice

PARALEGAL TRAINING MANUAL on Improving Women’s Access to Justice in Northern Nigeria

The community-based paralegal movement came about in response to the need to promote and protect human rights and to provide greater access to justice in grass root communities, particularly for marginalized, less privileged, and poor residents. Paralegal services also promote greater accountability of the justice system. Through the services of community-based paralegals, legal aid and legal advice are made more widely available, especially to women living in rural communities.

Community Based Para-Legal Training Manual

Where people do not have access to justice, they become more vulnerable to human right abuses. While it is the duty of governments to promote, protect and fulfill the rights for all citizens, citizens also have a correlating right and a duty to hold governments accountable to the fulfillment of this duty.
