For immediate release - 6 November 2006

ARTICLE 19 Publishes Checklist for the Implementation of Declaration of
Principles on Freedom of Expression in Africa

ARTICLE 19 today published a checklist specifically designed for civil
society organisations in Africa and elsewhere who wish to conduct a thorough
analysis of the implementation status of the African Union’s ‘Declaration of
Principles on Freedom of Expression in Africa’. The checklist allows civil
society organizations working on issues relating to freedom of expression
and access to information to establish the deficiencies in terms of concrete
provisions for the fulfilment and protection of freedom of expression. For
this reason some of the questions cover areas broader than the issue of
freedom of expression itself. The checklist interprets each article of the
Declaration in a comprehensive manner, providing substantial details on how
freedom of expression should be fulfilled and provided for. 

The checklist can therefore be used for the following exercises:

1) Researching and writing shadow reports to be submitted to the African
Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights 

2) Establishing areas of focus for freedom of expression campaigns and
advocacy initiatives to influence policy or legislative reviews.

The checklist can be downloaded at
