Citizen Engagement for African Integration and Transformation

The 2nd dialogue between civil society organizations and the Pan African Parliament (PAP) brought together civil society leaders from across Africa to engage with members of PAP on issues related to  state and citizens’ relations. Under the theme, “African Integration, Transformation & Citizen Engagement,” the focus of the meeting was African citizens’ role in political and economic transformation on  the continent. In particular, the ‘democratic deficit’ in Africa was addressed as a major impediment to governance and integration. This dialogue was also a celebration of Africa Day – the 25th of May.
