Fanaka Kwa Wote is a nonpartisan nonprofit research organization devoted to promoting better public policy in the Great Lakes region. Our three core research areas are justice and the rule of law, human security, and economic growth.
In addition to publishing its own research, FKW seeks to provide a forum for productive dialogue between citizens, civil society groups and representative governments. This year FKW will focus on Uganda's nascent oil industry providing research and legislative assistance to Uganda's parliament.
