Advancing Rights in Benin

Launched in 2021, the 18-month Advancing Rights in Benin Program seeks to counter democratic backsliding in Benin. The USAID-supported program is strengthening key institutions, including the National Human Rights Commission and rights-oriented civil society. ABA ROLI is working with partners to improve documentation and advocacy relating to violations of human rights. The program will also increase public access to the National Human Rights Commission by assisting the Commission to develop and support regional human rights resource centers that are staffed by ABA ROLI-supported Human Rights Officers.
