AFRICAN UNION AND OAS TO HOST "DEMOCRACY BRIDGE" MEETING IN U.S.

Promote and defend democracy across Africa and the Americas at the "Democracy Bridge" meeting, on 11 and 12 July in Washington, D.C.

Along with academics and civil society reps, the African Union and the Organization of American States are getting together to analyse democracy, human rights and conflict resolution, focusing specifically on the newly approved African Charter on Democracy, Election and Governance and what can be learned from its American counterpart.

Check out the panels and "breakout" sessions on how to observe elections, promote democratic institutions and network across the region.

Civil society organisations that would like to participate should email: [email protected] or fax: +1 (202) 458-3665.
