Human Rights in Africa - The Challenges of Today

Posted by Charles Clerck (Admin) 2 months ago

The latest UN article I could find on human rights in Africa was dated 2004! (feel free to correct me if I am wrong?) https://www.un.org/africarenewal/magazine/july-2004/human-rights-move-africas-agenda 

There appears to have been a number of articles pubshed within the last year e.g. https://www.hrw.org/africa and https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/international-and-comparative-law-quarterly/article/understanding-and-overcoming-challenges-in-accessing-the-african-court-on-human-and-peoples-rights/B07DB215F5DB24E5A267098F92740240.

Technology has radically changed in fourteen years. So what are the current issues and how can we use the digital technology of 2018 to overcome these challenges?

Africa is a big market destination when it comes to digital market. The reason is partly because Africa is a consuming economy and has no choice but to accept any digital development available to them. As digital development gradually penetrate Africa, this is the time to learn and be a co-producer of digital technology. In that way, digital technology will grow faster in Africa and Africa should now be able to penetrate other continents with their digital technology.

Hello Bhuvana. Can you please clarify the PDF link above as the link does not appear to work? Were you referring to this page? https://www.ukri.org/news/ukri-strengthens-african-partnership/

Hi Charles, that's right. The link on women led start ups is in the Africa renewal magazine. 

 

That link was found from your search on 2004 Africa renewal link.
