THE ROAD TO EGYPT
The bi-annual event, which precedes the Ordinary Session of the ACHPR, is an advocacy platform for discussing human rights issues in Africa with a view of identifying possible strategies for engagement or redress, which are forwarded to the African Commission as contribution to its work during a said Session. The NGOs Forum shares updates on the human rights situation in Africa by the African and international NGOs community with a view of identifying responses as well as adopting strategies towards improving the human rights situation on the continent.
The objective of the NGOs Forum is mainly to foster closer collaboration between and among NGOs and with the African Commission and other African human rights mechanisms, for the purpose of promoting and protecting human rights in Africa.
