Challenging crime and criminal justice systems in Africa: Towards restoration of Afrocentric justice
Don Omale reports on an international seminar conducted in Abuja, Nigeria on 8 October 2009:
The seminar organised by a network of African organisations working on peace, security and conflict created an opportunity aimed at influencing reforms in the criminal justice systems in Africa. It also serves as a dialogue forum for drawing attention to the effects of crime and defective criminal justice systems on the
sustainability of the democratic and developmental process of Africa. Recommendations from the seminar also aim to complement the formal National Economic Partnership for African Development (NEPAD)-Africa Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) process.
