On July 5-6, Africa Legal Aid convened in Johannesburg a Pan-African conference on Human Rights and Business, in cooperation with law firm Webber Wentzel. The event brought together legal experts, business leaders, civil society representatives, and public officials who engaged in lively and inspiring debates about the various aspects of the interface between corporate accountability and human rights in Africa. The full report of the conference shall be issued in September; in the meantime, we invite you to take a look at some pictures taken during the event, which have been published on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Africa-Legal-Aid-AFLA/111108335669002

Prizes are of US$500, 250, 150 respectively; also, the three winning essays will be published in Africa Legal Aid’s flagship journal, the ALFA Quarterly.
