Sign up for democracy in Africa

African democracy institute Idasa is renewing its efforts to get the African Union’s Charter on Democracy, Elections and Governance ratified in more African countries. More than 30 member states have signed it, but very few have endorsed it, which is what it needs to become official AU policy. Idasa’s Stefan Gilbert and Jean Scrimgeour will be visiting Malawi, Cape Verde, Sierra Leone, Senegal, Kenya and Namibia over the course of a month to hold seminars to popularise this crucial document. Read more about Idasa’s campaign here and the Charter itself here.
