About Accountability Counsel
Accountability Counsel (AC) amplifies the voices of communities to protect their human rights and environment. As advocates for people harmed by internationally ﬁnanced projects, we employ community driven and policy level strategies to access justice. Since our founding in 2009, our team has partnered with communities and advocates from over 60 countries to defend their rights, demand justice, and achieve historic victories.
We work toward change through three programmatic approaches. Our Policy Advocacy program advocates for accountability oﬃces that are accessible, transparent, and fair tools for justice; our Communities program provides grassroots legal support and assists communities to use accountability oﬃces eﬀectively; and our Research team delivers concrete research and tools for the accountability movement more broadly. Our respect-based approach underlies all that we do: internally, it guides how our team treats one another, and externally, it ensures that marginalized people, particularly women and girls, are included as full participants in community-led strategies seeking accountability.
