Nairobi (Kenya),  20-21 July 2017

The regional consultation for Africa took place in Nairobi, Kenya, 20–21 July 2017.

Hosted by Strathmore University Law School together with the Universities of Nairobi and Pretoria, it gathered academics, civil society and persons involved in treaty bodies and African (or regional) human rights mechanisms to discuss their views on the 2020 Treaty Body Review as initiated in 2014 by the General Assembly of the United Nations.

Participants notably discussed the complementarity of treaty bodies with the African human rights mechanisms, as well as ways to maximize the effectiveness of treaty bodies' activity and to increase their accessibility in the region.
