The East African Community Human Rights Program (EACHRP)

The activities under this action benefit from on-going partnerships at the regional level. The regional campaign focuses on but not limited to; the Protocol expanding the jurisdiction of the East African Court of Justice (EACJ) to include human rights, Parliament and human rights with a focus on the East Africa Legislative Assembly (EALA), International Criminal Justice focusing on the International Criminal Court (ICC) in Africa, and the African Court on Human and Peoples Rights on access to justice.
