guidelines on state reporting
under the Protocol and to strengthen understanding of state reporting obligations in accordance with the Guidelines. Twenty-five representatives from government, National Human Rights Institutions, and civil society from Mali, Senegal, Mauritania, Burkina Faso and Cameroon attended.
Presentations were made on the African Human Rights System, the African Women's rights Protocol, and the state reporting process, and Commissioner Maiga provided an overview of the situation of women's human rights in Africa, including highlights of challenges and good practices. The workshop was highly also participatory. After sharing the status of reporting in each country and the challenges faced by those tasked with state reporting, participants worked in country groups to draft a report on the Women's Rights Protocol and present it in a moot session of the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights.
