The RIHRS programme will:

  • Focus on countries where ISLA does not have formal partners, including Francophone and Lusophone countries.
  • Support and seek to advance women’s human rights litigation before African human rights systems and the UN treaty bodies.
  • Focus on the exhaustion of domestic remedies, sourcing cases and finding local partners to collaborate with in order to enable litigation before regional human rights systems and UN treaty bodies.
  • Collaborate with other institutions and groups working to strengthen African human rights systems.
