About Global Witness
For nearly 25 years, Global Witness has run pioneering campaigns against natural resource-related conflict and corruption and associated environmental and human rights abuses. From Cambodia to Congo, Sierra Leone to Angola, we have exposed the brutality and injustice that results from the fight to access and control natural resource wealth, and have sought to bring the perpetrators of this corruption and conflict to book. Global Witness is headquartered in London and has a U.S. Office in Washington, DC. The U.S. Office’s research and advocacy efforts include the following issues: tackling conflict minerals, combating corruption in the oil, gas and mining sector, addressing illicit financial flows, and combating illegal logging and unsustainable forest use.
