The regional campaign on decriminalisation of petty offences in Africa will be holding a virtual regional conference in September 2020.
The seminar is jointly hosted by the Institute for Security Studies and the African Policing Civilian Oversight Forum.
This seminar discusses the impact of COVID-19 on prosecutors and prosecution services.
This seminar will present preliminary results of an investigation into some of the more than 40 000 cases lodged with IPID since 2012/13, and what this shows about police use of force in South Africa.
This seminar launches three new ENACT studies that cover trends in criminalisation and criminal justice responses across Africa, trafficking in persons in Kenya, and how mobile money enables or aggravates human smuggling and trafficking. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the problem and its solutions will also be considered.
Sonke Gender Justice as the Secretariat of MEA will be convening a webinar to discuss ‘The impact of COVID 19 and the prevalence of SGBV among refugees and migrants’. The organisation will draw from its vast experience of working with refugees and migrants through the refugees’ health and rights project within its Community Education and Mobilisation unit to share its reflections using the case study of South Africa. Other speakers will be invited to share experiences from across the continent.
