African Centre for Democracy & Human Rights Studies (ACDHRS) - TrustAfrica wiki - African Regional Organizations

The African Centre for Democracy and Human Rights Studies (ACDHRS) is an independent human rights NGO based in Banjul, The Gambia. It was set up in 1989 by an Act of Parliament of the Republic of The Gambia. However, in 1995, the Act was repealed and statutes adopted to make the Centre a truly independent, autonomous and pan-African NGO.
The African Centre seeks to promote the awareness and adherence of human rights and democratic principles throughout the African continent. It further seeks to uphold and promote Article 25 of the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights which states that: State Parties have the duty to “promote and ensure, through teaching, education and publication, respect of the rights and freedoms contained in the present Charter and to see to it that these freedoms and rights as well as corresponding obligations and duties are understood”.
