Global Witness

Congratulations to Global Witness. The small NGO was given the 2007 Commitment to Development award by the Center for Global Development and Foreign Policy magazine.

The award honors individuals or organizations for "raising public awareness and changing the attitudes and policies of the rich world toward developing countries."

According to the CGD, Global Witness has repeatedly exposed "the corrupt exploitation of natural resources and the international trade system" as well as human rights and environmental abuses.
