About Us

Africa Legal Aid (AFLA) is an influential pan-African entity devoted to promoting human rights and international criminal justice. AFLA was founded the 21st of October 1995, to coincide with the Africa Day of Human Rights. Celebrated for its convening power and its flagship publications, AFLA provides leadership and support to key institutions and organizations working for respect and recognition of human rights and international justice. AFLA operates throughout Africa and has a small office in the international legal capital of The Hague.

AFLA has been at the forefront of universalizing international criminal justice and has engaged with stakeholders in Africa and the Global North in this endeavour. AFLA has worked to increase accessibility of the ICC to national actors. It has spearheaded efforts to incorporate much needed African perspectives in the global campaign to promote accountability and end impunity for gross human rights violations. In the process, AFLA has become a leading voice in international justice.
