Development Policy Forum/DSE of the German Foundation for International Development. The objective of the Development Policy Forum is to promote political dialogue within the framework of multilateral and bilateral development cooperation. The Forum provides an opportunity to talk informally, free from the pressure to make decisions and from direct political constraints.



The Africa Policy Information Center provides accessible information and analysis in order to promote U.S. and international policies toward Africa that advance economic, political and social justice and the full spectrum of human rights.

APIC promotes citizen action to influence public policy through:

* disseminating information and analysis electronically and through publications that educate,
frame policy debates, and promote a rich content of excluded progressive and African voices;
* promoting dialogue and debates; and
* facilitating collaborative relationships through coalitions and networks.



The Center for Economic and Social Rights (CESR) was established in 1993 to promote social justice through human rights.  CESR works with social scientists and local partners in affected communities to document rights violations, advocate for changes in policies that impoverish and exploit people, and mobilize grassroots pressure for social change.
