RFLD CIVICUS ACHPR Side Event on Shrinking of Civic and Democratic Space – Focus on Eswatini and Benin

With support from CIVICUS, RFLD is organizing two side events.

This side event will be held on the sidelines of the 69th Session of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights. These discussions will enable civil society actors and human rights defenders to interact with the sub regional and human rights system, with particular emphasis on the African human rights system. These side events will take into account thematic such as freedom of association and assembly, human rights regional instruments and mechanisms. There is an obligation to promote and respect human rights, which is the responsibility of States, and RFLD, CSVR, ICNL, and CIVICUS are there to sound the alarm when states do not comply with the treaties they have ratified.
