Human rights defenders: indispensable agents of democracy in DR Congo

Over the current election period, there have been many constraints on the rights and freedoms of human rights defenders and pro-democracy activists in the DR Congo; this has been a source of political and social tension. Threats, arbitrary arrests, and unwarranted legal action have increased dramatically, indicating growing restrictions on the public sphere. ASF believes that these actors play an indispensable role in any democratic process.

Birth certificates in CAR: the exception rather than the rule

Most Central Africans, especially the youngest, do not possess a birth certificate and thus don’t exist in the eyes of the state. What is the reason for this lack of registration? What are the obstacles to access to the Register of Births, Marriages, and Deaths? What are the consequences? ASF appointed Thierry Vircoulon, an expert on Central Africa, to carry out a study to enable a better understanding of the issue and propose solutions.

ASF support provided to the International Crimes Division in Uganda

Since 2012, ASF has been supporting the International Crimes Division (ICD) in Uganda. The ICD is a domestic court that was created as part of the government’s efforts to implement the Juba Peace Agreement. It is within the ICD’s jurisdiction to try serious offences such as war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide. Given Uganda’s history of violent conflicts, the ICD plays a critical role in delivering justice in relation to past atrocities.

Human beings, not slaves: breaking the taboo around human trafficking in Tunisia

For several months, from the Kef to Sfax, hundreds of people have been mobilising to free Manel, Kayta, Morjena, and Hamma.
