Progress in implementing the APRM in South Africa

  SAIIA

The South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA), the Centre for Policy Studies (CPS) and the African Governance Monitoring and Advocacy Project (AfriMAP) cordially invite you to the launch of the South African APRM Monitoring Project (AMP) Report on Tuesday 28 June 2011 at the Pan African Parliament, 19 Richards Drive, Gallagher Estate, Midrand, commencing at 10:00am.

The Public Protector, Advocate Thuli Madonsela, will be the keynote speaker, followed by a response from the Director of ActionAid South Africa, Ms Zanele Twala.

We are also honoured to be joined at the launch by the Mayor of Tshwane, Kgosientso  Ramokgopa, and Mayor of Cape Town, Patricia de Lille, who will make some brief remarks. There will be a press conference immediately after the event.

The report, entitled Progress in implementing the APRM in South Africa, is the first attempt to gauge the views and opinions of civil society about the APRM and its progress in this country, while measuring the commitment levels of the government of South Africa in implementing its National Programme of Action in critical areas such as justice sector reforms; crime; corruption; political participation; public service delivery; press freedom; managing diversity; deepening democracy and overall governance, amongst other issues.

The report is a culmination of a year-long collective effort among CSOs to jointly assess and analyse governance in South Africa. It finds that progress has been admirable in a few areas, but slow in several others. Please see the attached programme.

Please RSVP to Ms Baaitse.Nethononda@wits.ac.za by 24 June 2011 for catering purposes, as places are limited.

For media enquiries, kindly contact Mr Jeggan Grey-Johnson, jeggang@osisa.org or 083 620 0578.

We hope to see you at the launch.
