International Advocates’ Working Group
Accountability Counsel convenes the International Advocates’ Working Group (IAWG), a network of civil society organizations and practitioners who actively support complaints and advocate for stronger policies and practices at international accountability offices. IAWG was established to provide a dedicated space to share information, lessons learned, best practice, and strategy around international accountability offices. The working group is composed of advocates from around the world who work at the local, regional, and global levels. Members of IAWG communicate on a regular basis and participate in an annual retreat.
