Centre for Public Interest Law (CEPIL)

The Centre for Public Interest Law (CEPIL) is a rights based non-governmental not for profit organization established in 1999 and incorporated under the Companies Code 1963 (Act 179) as a company limited by guarantee.

The founding of CEPIL has its roots in discussions between Dr. Dominic Ayine, the Executive Director of CEPIL and Mr. Charles Abugre the then Executive Director of Integrated Social Development Center (ISODEC) regarding issues of public and private accountability in Ghana’s Mining Sector.

These discussions led to further thinking regarding the protection of the rights of vulnerable mining communities.ISODEC had then started work on a legal aid program for these communities but the program became still born.
