The Centre for Human Rights, University of Pretoria, in collaboration with the Pan-African Parliament (PAP), cordially invite you to a Civil Society Forum, to be held on the sidelines of the upcoming PAP October Ordinary Session in Midrand, South Africa.
The launch of the 2019 theme at the 32nd AU Summit came at a time when forced displacement remains a major issue confronting the African continent. More than a third of the world’s forcibly displaced people are in Africa, including 6.3 million refugees and asylum-seekers and 14.5 million internally displaced people.
The CSO Forum will deliberate on the AU 2019 theme ‘Year of Refugees, Returnees and IDPs: Towards Durable Solutions to Forced Displacement in Africa’, which came at a perfect time to urge leaders and civil society to act fast in protecting refugees, migrants displaced persons. The aim of the forum is to explore avenues for countering xenophobic violence in various parts of Africa, enhance protection for refugees in various parts of the continent and mobilise effectively in protecting displaced populations.
