The COVID-19 pandemic adversely impacted the entire world and their governments, including those in Africa, responded by imposing varying degrees of restrictions to contain the spread of the virus and save lives.

REFORMAR – Research for Mozambique and the African Criminal Justice Reform Project (ACJR)  produced a set of reports on COVID-19 prevention measures in five countries, namely Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Africa South and Zambia.

The reports provide an overview of:

  • Legal frameworks as applicable during Covid-19 restrictions,
  • The implications on civil and political rights of the restrictions imposed,
  • The role played by monitoring institutions,
  • The legal challenges of planned and imposed restrictions.

You are invited to join REFORMAR and ACJR for a 90-minute webinar that aims to disseminate the main conclusions of the reports and collect their important contributions.

Speakers:

  • Lukas Muntingh, Project Coordinator
  • Jean Redpath, Senior Researcher
  • Janelle Mangwanda, Researcher
  • Kristen Peterson, Researcher

Facilitator: Janelle Mangwanda

After registration, participants will receive a confirmation email containing information on how to join the webinar. A language event interpretation service is provided.
