Symposium statement
Concept Note


The 2008 Annual Symposium will be the third event of its kind organised by EISA. In 2006, the first symposium examined the challenges of conflict, democracy and development in Africa. In 2007, the second symposium looked at sustainable democratic governance, asking the question whether democracy works in Africa under conditions of entrenched poverty and enfeebled institutions. In 2008, the symposium focuses upon the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM). It will draw upon the experiences of policy makers and civil society stakeholders over the five yeas since its inception in 2003.
