AU Watch

Policy Analysis Seminars

  • Our policy and analysis is based on lessons learned from years of working with the AU and in Africa. To engage with our leaders AU Watch has set up the ‘NGO Forum on the (African) Summit of Heads of State and Government.’ At the margins of every Summit and for three days before the policy organs meet, AU Watch organizes an NGO forum, bringing together various NGOs to strengthen cooperation on democratic values, defend common interests, and debate the major issues facing the continent, and which are of importance to the African people.
  • At the margins of all the Ordinary Sessions of the African Commission, the African Court, the Expert Committee of the Rights of the Child, the PSC, AU Watch convene a one-day ‘Human Security Ideas Workshop’ event to discuss important developments and challenges in human security and human rights theory and practice with experts, practitioners and academics. The events, which comprise of keynote speakers and open discussion, help to frame topics, generate ideas and support programming.
