Advocacy at the African Union
The Coalition conducts advocacy and lobbying on key issues relating to the African Court at the African Union and at country level.
Key areas of engagement include the nominations process, monitoring the enforcement of judgments, aspects relating to the functioning of the Court, universal ratification of the protocol establishing the African Court, ensuring greater access for individuals and NGOs to the African Court and the creation of the African Court of Justice and Human Rights.
Written submissions, attending AU Summits and the sessions of the African Court and the African Commission, attending AU meetings relating to the African Court of Justice and Human Rights and engaging with governments are some of the strategies adopted.
