3rd High-Level Panel Dialogue on Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment

 

“The Contributions of the Maputo Protocol on Women’s Rights in Achieving Gender Equality in Africa: Stocktaking, Opportunities and Accountability”

The African Union Women, Gender and Development Directorate (WDGG) and the African Union Leadership Academy (AULA) in partnership with fellow AUC Departments, the Office of the Special Envoy, OHCHR, and CSOs partners hosted the African Union 3rd High Level Panel Dialogue on Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment (3rd HLP GEWE), from 08 – 09 July 2016 on the margins of the 27th AU Ordinary Summit of the Heads of State and Government in July 2016, in Kigali, Rwanda. The Panel was framed within the 2016 AU theme of the "African Year of Human Rights with a particular focus on the Rights of Women’’, under the theme "The Contributions of the Maputo Protocol on Women’s Rights in Achieving Gender Equality in Africa: Stocktaking, Opportunities and Accountability". 

The AULA supported this event under its Policy Program Dialogue (PPD) Sessions that are intended to provoke a dialogue and sharing of experiences around African Union program implementation more broadly through a programme of knowledge and experience sharing seminars, workshops and collaborative learning opportunities. All PPD Sessions are aligned to the implementation of Agenda 2063 priorities and are organized in partnership with focal departments and AU Organs. This report emerges from a bigger and detailed overall report and should be read in the context of the main 3rd HLP GEWE Report. Its aim is to elaborate the policy dialogue program of AULA.
