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.
This seminar will discuss results from the policing of sex work study, and how police performance can be improved in South Africa. It will be hosted by the Institute for Security Studies in collaboration with Sonke Gender Justice and the Sex Worker Education & Advocacy Taskforce (SWEAT).
This View on Africa is presented by Gareth Newham, Head of the Justice and Violence Prevention Programme at ISS. He will discuss how the president and new police minister, Bheki Cele, can turn South Africa’s policing crisis around.
