Accra Conference Report: West African International Justice

Elise Carreau International Conferences, News and Events, News and Events AGJA

West Africa has been the scene of impressive activity in the fight against impunity for international crimes and merits scrutiny in its own right.

It was this that prompted the Wayamo Foundation, the Africa Group for Justice and Accountability (AGJA) and the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung’s Rule of Law Programme for Sub- Saharan Africa to hold a symposium and lecture in Accra, Ghana, on the wide-ranging topic of “West African International Justice – Leadership, Challenges, and Opportunities”, with the aim of examining and exploring the contributions and ongoing challenges facing West Africa in the fight to achieve meaningful justice and accountability for atrocities in the region.

A handpicked group of international and regional experts came together to assess West Africa’s contributions to global justice and the continuing challenges to achieving this end.
