Our Strategy: The Africa Center for Law and Human Rights will collaborate with humane entities to advance transparency, accountability, freedom of expression, and ensure compliance with civil and political rights. Economic, social, and cultural rights shall also be addressed through advocacy, research and publication, education and training, strategic litigation, capacity building, and awareness campaigns before the law in Africa. We will work toward equality of representation in the ECOWAS Community Court of Justice, the African Court on Human and Peoples Rights, the International Court of Justice (ICJ), and the International Criminal Court (ICC) as needed. Promoting human rights compliance will enhance the respect of human and peoples’ rights in Africa.

Working in collaboration with other human right bodies, we will prepare and publish an Integrity, Ethics, and Anti-Corruption workbook for justices of the peace, magistrates, and trial judges and judicial personnel. The workbook and affiliated training shall incorporate the logistics of legal referendums and be disseminated biannually through human rights conferences and workshops.
