Hub Afrique, for provision of support to civil society, movements, and human rights defenders with cutting edge and responsive technical services, was conceived through a series of consultations at different levels to expand the shrinking civil society space. The consultations took place in various locations in Africa, bringing together different actors, civil society activists, HRDs, women’s representatives, advocates and community based activists. The consultations were attended by over 85 individuals from different backgrounds and different countries. The Africa Hub will be constituted of regional connectors that feed into the continental hub, but enjoying institutional autonomy, connected only with the provision of services.
The overall mission of Hub Afrique is to protect, respond, strengthen, expand and recover civil society space across Africa.
