OUR VISION, MISSION AND VALUES

Our Vision

Accountability International’s vision is a world where there is accountability for the lives, human rights and wellbeing of all persons, across all spheres of society.


Our Mission


As a watchdog ourselves, our mission is to amplify the diverse voices of marginalised communities, by ensuring that the voices of the community lead all our work. We collaborate with marginalized communities to actively exercise their role as watchdog and hold various leaders accountable. We do this by enabling increased transparency, promoting dialogue and supporting action as catalysts for increased accountability.


Our Values


We are committed to human rights for all. Without exception.

Our work is intended to contribute to the fulfilment of human rights for marginalised people who are made vulnerable by the intersecting struggles emanating from their identities, expressions, behaviours, geopolitical and socio-economic status.

1. Transparency


Data, full, relevant, correct, accurate and unbiased data that is methodologically sound, periodically, transparently and inclusively collected, analysed and reported as well as transparent about its failings and limitations is a vital starting point for any discussion on developing a response to attain sustainable, resilient and inclusive human rights access.

2. Dialogue


Dialogue should mean all relevant stakeholders can meaningfully and freely participate, without fear, in the discussions and debates, share their successes and learn from their failures, so that all leaders, including duty-bearers, are able to be more accountable to the commitments they must implement.

3. Action


Action is necessary for leaders to improve their delivery on human rights. Tangible and pragmatic, measurable and realistic are required so that we can realise a world where there is accountability for the lives, human rights and wellbeing of all persons, across all spheres of society. All leaders, not just governments, need to act to ensure transparency and dialogue are part of the development process.
