On July 10, 2009, participants filled a conference room at the CIDOB Foundation for EG Justice's launching in Spain and for the first EG Policy Forum. Arvind Ganesan, Director of Business and Human Rights at Human Rights Watch, gave an overview of the major findings of Human Rights Watch's report, Well Oiled: Oil and Human Rights in Equatorial Guinea. Subsequently, Ignacio Saiz, interim Executive Director of the Center for Economic and Social Rights, discussed his organization's fact sheet, Equatorial Guinea: Visualizing Rights, a rigorous statistical analysis of human development, census, and economic growth data that graphically depicts the social imbalances in Equatorial Guinea.
