Not On Our Watch
Not On Our Watch aims to bring an end to complex conflicts that the wider international community may not be aware of
Not On Our Watch (NOOW) is committed to robust advocacy and research in support of global human rights. Using the unique platforms available to their board members, they develop projects and campaigns that bring global attention to forgotten international crises.
The Sentry, co-founded by George Clooney and John Prendergast, is an initiative of NOOW and the Enough Project, with its implementing partner C4ADS.
The Sentry is a team of financial forensic investigators which aims to disrupt and dismantle the networks of military officers, government officials, businessmen, arms dealers, bankers, and other enablers who benefit financially and politically from Africa’s deadliest conflicts.
Investigations follow the money from conflict zones and into global economic centers, using open source data collection, field research, document collection, and state-of-the-art network analysis technology.
The Sentry provides information and analysis that engages civil society and media, supports regulatory action and prosecutions, and provides policy-makers and the private sector with the information they require to take effective action.
Current countries of focus are South Sudan, Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Somalia, and the Central African Republic
