The APRM Process in Namibia – A Call For Action

A Civil Society Submission

In January 2017, Namibia became the 36th African Union (AU) member state to voluntarily accede to the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM). The APRM’s rules require that civil society is meaningfully involved in each country’s review process. Together with government and the private sector, the country’s civil society sought to diagnose governance strengths and weaknesses, and develop appropriate and applicable remedies. This submission is a result of a collaborative process between Namibian civil society groups over the course of 2018.
