The Peace Centre in partnership with Mediators Beyond Borders International (MBBI), Food and Climate, Io: Facilitating Spaces for Feminist Conversations and the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation (IJR) invite you to a discussion interrogating elections in Africa on April 27, 2022, at 3:00 p.m (EAT).
Elections are seen as a key ingredient of democratic governance. The discipline of acquiring power through an election is assumed to make governments accountable to citizens, and thereby confer legitimacy- but do they? The current nature of elections or politics makes it hard for women to be in that space of power.
Let’s start a series of conversations on how elections can be organized differently to allow women’s meaningful participation and influence the political process in the African region.
