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.
