Ige, Aderonke

Position: Associate Director

Aderonke is a humanitarian lawyer and development expert. Born during the military regime in Nigeria, with early childhood experiences of oppression, exclusion and first-hand brazen violations of Human Rights, she knew from then that she would fight for opposite realities and engage actively in the defence of human rights and public interests. She has since been actively engaged as a development practitioner and social impact crusader for the past 10 years.

With visible passion for subject matters of Good governance, participatory Development, Inclusion and Human Rights, she undertakes Public Interest advocacies, while connecting campaigns on cross-cutting issues with awareness building. Prior to her CAPPA journey, she had championed legislative advocacies that led to the enactment of Community Service Law in Oyo state, Nigeria, as a direct criminal Justice reform intervention, Land grabbing criminalization and other public interest legislation between 2015 & 2017, during her years of work at Justice Development and Peace Commission.

At Corporate Accountability & Public Participation Africa, she carries out policy advocacy, while being a team player in organizing, movement building, community engagements and campaigns for environmental justice, human rights and resistance building against oppressive policies of Government. She works directly on Water campaign and climate justice program.
