February-March 2017.

To be convened by African Court

Calling on all Africans!

In July 2016, the African Union Summit declared “the Human and Peoples’ Rights Decade in Africa 2017-2026”. The AU Commission and AU Organs with a human rights mandate are therefore developing the African Human Rights Action and Implementation Plan 2017-26 to specify how Africa can achieve substantial progress in human rights.

The African Union is therefore calling on all stakeholders – AU Member States, African Union institutions, regional economic communities (RECs), African research institutions, universities, civil society and the media – to participate.
