Report: Civil society perspectives on AU member state commitments to democratic governance


The report explores civil society organisations’ judgements about the extent to which some African countries comply with signed governance commitments.

This study, a collaborative effort between the Open Society Foundation’s Africa Regional Office (AfRO), the Wits School of Governance and civil society organisations in East, West and Southern Africa, provides a civil society assessment of AU Member States’ capacity to actively implement AGA commitments.

The findings and recommendations from this research should provide the depth of a civil society perspective on Member State compliance to AU commitments.
