The International Center for Not-for-Profit Law (ICNL) in conjunction with the Centre for Human Rights (CHR) hosted a workshop on freedom of association and civil society laws in Africa from 11 to 12 July 2013. The workshop was aimed at academia, civil society and practitioners in particular.

Representatives from all over Africa attended the event, which included presentations by experts in the field of civil society laws and its implications.

The focus of the workshop was to discuss and analyse civil society laws across the continent, in the context of other human rights and international law instruments. The ICNL, represented by Mr Emerson Sykes, also introduced its toolkit for analysing civil society laws, and is available for download at http://www.icnl.org/research/resources/dcs/. Other speakers included Ms Faith Kisinga and Dr Bhekinkosi Moyo.
