African Commission on Human & Peoples’ Rights: Side Event on the Human Rights Situation in Somalia and Sudan

The human rights situations in Somalia and Sudan continue to be among the gravest, and most complex, on the African Continent. Today, on the margins of the African Commission at 6pm, in Committee Room 1, EHAHRDP and our partners from ACJPS, SIHA, and SIMHA, will be hosting a major side-event to explore these challenges. On the panel is Hon. Commissioner Reine Alapini-Gansou, Special Rapporteur on Human Rights Defenders in Africa for the ACHPR. Please join us. Refreshments (and lively debate) will be provided.

Human Rights Defender of the Month: Malab Alneel

Malab Alneel was only 20 when Sudan’s revolution started in December 2018, but she knew it was the moment to get involved: “I grew up in a house that was very political. All of my sisters are activists, my parents are very involved. Activism has always been there. But for me it started with the revolution. It just felt like a time for change.”
