About Global Witness
When someone is murdered defending their home because big business wants their land this is corruption. When people struggle for shelter while empty mansions are used to launder money – this is corruption. When a child breathes polluted air because coal companies and politicians put profits before people – this is corruption.
Our mission is to campaign to end this and we do this by carrying out hard-hitting investigations, exposing the facts, and pushing to change the system. We are independent, not for profit, and we work with partners around the world in our fight for justice.
