EISA's 20th Anniversary Symposium 2016

Current democratic realities in Africa: Where are we headed beyond the vote?

Johannesburg, South Africa

20 to 21 October 2016


EISA celebrated its 20 year anniversary by reflecting on the continent's democratic triumphs - those elements pulling states closer to democratic consolidation - while also acknowledging the democratic shortfalls - pushing African States backwards. In reviewing progress and challenges confronting the continent, the symposium provided a platform for democracy-promotion stakeholders to examine current democratic realities in Africa and where the continent is headed on the current wave of democracy.
