To hold the sixth round of its “Fighting Impunity in East Africa” project, the Wayamo Foundation returned to where it had all begun…Arusha, Tanzania. Here, in the shadow of Mt. Meru, an intensive, week-long series of events was organised within the framework of an initiative funded by the German Foreign Ministry, co-hosted by the Africa Group for Justice and Accountability (AGJA), and fittingly entitled “BEYOND NARROW INTERESTS – JUSTICE AND ACCOUNTABILITY IN EAST AFRICA”.
Following on from five previous workshops on “Strengthening Justice and Accountability in Nigeria” held over the course of 2017 and 2018, the conclusion of the latest three-day session in Lagos, from November 1 to 3, marks the sixth in the series organised, promoted, designed and conducted by the Wayamo Foundation, the Africa Group for Justice and Accountability (AGJA) and the International Nuremberg Principles Academy.
Abuja hosts capacity building for military and civil investigators and prosecutors to address serious crimes under Nigerian criminal law. The three-day workshop (21-23 May) is organised by the Wayamo Foundation and the International Nuremberg Principles Academy.
