Building on its 30-year history in the field, MacArthur announced a new human rights and international justice grantmaking strategy that will focus on defending freedom of expression and enhancing criminal justice globally, with a special emphasis in Mexico, Nigeria, and Russia. “Growing threats to freedom of expression by repressive governments, new demands by citizens for accountable and transparent governance, and heightened attention to national and local justice opportunities are just some of the emerging trends that we are seeing in the field,” said Mary Page, the Foundation’s Human Rights and International Justice Director. “Our new strategy seeks to be responsive to these developments and to continue our long-standing commitment to strengthening human rights protections, advancing government accountability, and improving the reach and quality of justice.”
