Africa: Oral statement on the Agenda Item 3: "Human Rights Dialogue", 59th Ordinary Session of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights

This dialogue presents an opportunity for reflection on how the continent may begin to move more rapidly towards a true human rights culture; from rhetoric or symbolic gestures to concrete actions. In advance of the 27th AU Summit held in July in Kigali, Rwanda, under the theme ‘African year human rights with a particular focus on women’s rights’, Amnesty International outlined seven priority recommendations for African leaders and the continent as a whole.
