Chad: Legal analysis of the Chadian Ordinance on the right to freedom of association: The use of national legislation to impose unlawful restrictions on the right to freedom of associations

, Index number: AFR 20/9240/2018

In the wake of the Fourth Republic of Chad and after President Idriss Deby Itno promulgated a new Constitution in May 2018, Chadian authorities have amended a number of laws including the Ordinance no.023/PR/2018 of 27 June 2018, that regulates associations. Amnesty International, Brot für die Welt and four federations of Chadian civil society organizations – comprising 36 associations – regret that the authorities missed this opportunity to integrate recommendations made by several human rights organisations and bring the previous Ordinance in line with the Chadian Constitution and international and regional human rights laws and standards.
