Strengthening systems of democratic governance in African Union member states

This project is a pan-African initiative that aims to strengthen systems of democratic governance in African Union member states, supported by the African Governance Architecture (AGA) and enshrined in the African Charter on Democracy, Elections, and Governance (ACDEG). At the core of this project is a focus on providing multi-level support to civic initiatives that advance digital means for enhanced collaboration between citizens and AU policymakers, empowering civil society and facilitating the monitoring and implementation of the ACDEG. Activities will include creating a digital resource hub, launching Democratic Governance Initiatives (DGIs), and conducting context analysis and policy research on the AU governance infrastructures and continental, regional, and national drivers of cooperation.
