ICNL aims to support innovative and impactful action by CSOs on the African continent to use the Guidelines to promote and protect the fundamental rights of association and assembly in Africa, and to expand space or navigate restrictions. To achieve these program goals, ICNL will provide small grants and technical assistance as needed.

For several years, ICNL has worked closely with the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights’ (ACHPR) Study Group on Freedom of Association and Assembly to develop Guidelines on Freedom of Association and Assembly in Africa (the Guidelines) under the supervision of the Special Rapporteur for Human RightsDefenders in Africa. The ACHPR adopted the Guidelines in 2017. In addition to their persuasive value, the Guidelines are a useful tool for states to ensure compliance with their obligation to protect fundamental freedoms of association and assembly and, more practically, to guide their work on state party reporting and drafting of internationally compliant laws. The Guidelines are also essential for the monitoring, advocacy and engagement undertaken by national human rights institutions, CSOs and media, amongst others.

Following the ACHPR’s adoption of the Guidelines, ICNL supported regional networks of human rights organizations to disseminate and popularize the Guidelines within their memberships and develop regional initiatives to support the practical use of the Guidelines. It is essential to ensure that continental and regional action is complemented by efforts at national level.
