Central and Western Africa

International Center for Not-For-Profit Law

We believe that all people have the right to join together to make their communities and the world a better place. To achieve this, everyone needs a safe, legal environment that supports civic freedoms, philanthropy, and public participation.

We work with civil society organizations, governments, and the international community to strengthen the legal environment for civil society. For more than twenty-five years, ICNL has worked alongside partners in more than 100 countries, providing us with in-depth expertise from local to global contexts.

Sorting Fact from Fiction: Nigeria's 2019 Elections

The Centre for Democracy and Development’s Election Analysis Centre (EAC) for the 2019 presidential and gubernatorial elections represented the first attempt in Nigeria at running a rigorous fact-checking process before, during and after the electoral process of both presidential and gubernatorial elections. CDD’s specific mandate was to provide a filter and check on viral stories that were demonstrably false. Or to confirm, with sources and justification, if certain events were true. To do this CDD worked in collaboration with the National Democratic Institute and the Premium Times.
