African Commission

The Coalition was granted observer status at the 44th Ordinary Session of the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights which was held in Abuja, Nigeria from 10 to 24 November 2008.

Coalition members use the sessions of the African Commission to conduct advocacy, organise discussions on the African Court, and publicise the work of the Coalition. Members also meet with government representatives and participate in parallel civil society events on raising awareness on the African human rights system.
