During its 19th Extra-Ordinary Session held in Banjul, the Gambia from 16 to 25 February 2016, the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights (the Commission) adopted ACHPR/Res. 332 (EXT.OS/XIX) 2016 (http://www.achpr.org/sessions/19th-eo/resolutions/332/), mandating Commissioner Solomon Ayele Dersso as Focal Point to, inter alia, conduct a Study on Human Rights in Conflict Situations in Africa, with a view to developing a comprehensive strategy and framework on the same.

Commissioner Dersso has since convened an expert consultative meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on 5 and 6 April 2018, during which a draft of the Study was reviewed by various experts working on the subject including representatives of: the African Union (AU) Peace and Security Department, the AU Department of Political Affairs, the Committee of Experts on the Rights and Welfare of the Child, other relevant AU organs, relevant United Nations agencies and field offices, and civil society organizations.

As part of the consultative process, a public stakeholders’ consultation will be held on the draft Study on Human Rights in Conflict Situations in Africa during the 62nd Ordinary Session of the Commission, on 30 April 2018, in Nouakchott, Mauritania, from 12:00pm to 13:00pm.
