Center for Democratic Governance

About us

The Center for Democratic Governance (CDG) is a pro-democracy advocacy, research, and organizational capacity development think tank that is legally registered with the Government of Liberia since 2015. The vision of the CDG is a Liberia where policies and laws are responsive to the needs of citizens. In pursuit of this vision, the CDG has the following mission: to transform democratic and governance policies from a top-down approach to one that is reflective of citizens’ voices, views, and perspectives.

The CDG does research work on a wide range of governance issues, including land reform, accountability, electoral violence, electoral reforms, political transition, transitional justice, and inclusive service delivery. The CDG uses the outcomes of its research to develop policy briefs for advocacy targeting high-level policy makers. The executive director is Atty. Oscar Bloh, who has more than 15 years of professional experience.
