Harmonising governance advocacy across Africa: A coordinated strategy for multi-level impact

On 5 March 2024 from 10:00-11:30 (CET), ECDPM and the wider Charter Project Africa will hold a webinar on National, regional and continental advocacy on governance in Africa: A combined approach for multi-level impact.  The webinar will focus on frameworks and practices for multi-level engagement with states, RECs and AU institutions on governance promotion and lessons for ACDEG promotion. 

The webinar will address the following questions: 

  • What is the relationship and division of labour between the African Union, regional communities and member states for ensuring governance implementation?
  • How can civil society organisations engage individually and collectively: i) domestically, ii) regionally, or iii) continentally, on governance promotion to ensure multi-level impact and effective advocacy? What role can civic tech play in this regard?
  • Are there any lessons from governance advocacy that may be applied in the promotion and monitoring of the ACDEG?
