TRES/08/4/12: Resolution on Policing and Human Rights
We participants of the Forum on the Participants of NGOs preceding the 51st Ordinary Session of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights and the 25th African Human Rights Book Fair held in Banjul from 14-16 April, 2012 hereby
reiterate the importance of the police sector in the promotion and protection of human rights and resolved to pursue its efforts to facilitate domestic, regional and continental discussions on this topic;
urge the African Commission on Human and People’s Rights to encourage and collaborate with the partners of these initiatives, which will culminate in a continental conference on Policing and Human Rights in 2013, and
further urge the African Commission to identify mechanisms to facilitate the ongoing dialogue with the Working Group.
