Africa Legal Aid (AFLA)
Africa Legal Aid (AFLA) is an influential pan-African entity devoted to promoting rights and accountability. AFLA was founded on 21st October 1995, to coincide with Africa Day of Human Rights. Celebrated for its convening power and its flagship publications, AFLA provides leadership and support to key institutions and organizations. AFLA operates throughout Africa and has a small office in the international legal capital, The Hague.
AFLA has been at the forefront of universalizing international criminal justice and has engaged with stakeholders in Africa and the Global North in this endeavour. AFLA has worked to increase accessibility of the ICC to national actors. It has spearheaded efforts to incorporate much needed African perspectives in the global campaign to promote accountability and end impunity for gross human rights violations. In the process, AFLA has become a leading voice in international criminal justice.
