Strengthening Accountable Governance in Africa


On July 20-29, Freedom House facilitated a workshop on accountable governance as part of its Africa Institute for Governing with Integrity initiative. Held outside Johannesburg, South Africa, the workshop convened 15 impressive young leaders from throughout Southern Africa, and sought to equip them with the vital skills necessary to lead positive change in both their places of employment and in their communities. The overall goal of the Institute—now in its second phase—is to build a sustainable network of dedicated leaders throughout the African continent who support each other in promoting principles of democratic governance in their home countries and the surrounding region.
