About Us

The Africa Centre for Open Governance (AfriCOG) is an independent, non-profit organisation that provides
cutting edge research and monitoring on governance and public ethics issues in both the public and private
sectors so as to address the structural causes of the crisis of governance in this country. The overall objectives
of our programme activities are: to promote the implementation of the Constitution of Kenya 2010; strengthen
anti-corruption and good governance in Kenya with objective, high-quality research and advocacy and to
build Kenya’s capacity to be permanently vigilant and monitor progress on governance issues in the public
and private sectors in Kenya. We also work with others at regional and international levels to promote collective
efforts towards anti-corruption, accountability, transparency and openness in governance. Our reports,
policy briefs and overall work add value to anti-corruption and governance reform processes in Kenya ad the
region by stimulating policy discussion and supporting evidence-based advocacy and the mobilisation work
of our partners.
