Featured project

East Africa Regional Program

In 2019, ABA ROLI launched the “Promoting and Protecting Freedom of Expression in East Africa” program with a focus on supporting local civil society partners in both Uganda and Tanzania. The implementing consortium will employ an array of strategies including strategic litigation, the provision of direct legal services to human rights defenders or others whose basic rights have been violated, and advocacy and research for greater protection of these fundamental rights.
