The Social and Economic Rights Action Center (SERAC) has received the 2010 MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions (MACEI) in recognition of the organization's consistent work in the advancement and protection of economic, social and cultural rights in Nigeria. SERAC is one of 11 organizations from six countries cited for the 2010 MACEI Award. According to Robert Gallucci, President of MacArthur Foundation, "these exceptional organizations effectively address pressing national and international challenges and they have had an impact that is disproportionate to their small size."
