Sudan Internship

About us

Project Expedite Justice (PEJ) is a United States-based NGO with 501(c)(3) charitable

organization status founded in 2016.

PEJ’s mission is to use all available legal options to seek justice for individuals who are

inadequately protected under the law, who cannot access legal resources, and who are exploited

by governments, corporations, or others.

We have projects in various countries and are an inclusive team that includes people working

remotely from many different places, including several countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, South

America, and the USA.

The Project

The ICMAC (Informed Communities Mobilized Against Corruption) project aims to empower

Sudanese media and civil society to hold corruption perpetrators accountable for human rights

violations. ICMAC’s approach is informed by extensive evidence of the limited effectiveness of

anti-corruption interventions reliant solely on a top-down approach. Citizens need information

and skilled intermediaries to effectively monitor reforms and demand improved policies as the

fight against corruption is underway in the political arena. For advocacy efforts to succeed, they

must be based on reliable, quality evidence. This can result in shifting the public narrative

towards more human rights-based anti-corruption approaches, emphasizing reparations to

victims and communities and tackling impunity.
