Between 19-21 September 1996, 133 delegates from 47 countries, including 40 African countries, met in Kampala, Uganda. Delegates, including the President of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights, Ministers of State, Prison Commissioners, Judges and international, regional and national non-governmental organisations concerned with prison conditions, all worked together to find common solutions to the problems facing African prisons. At the close of the conference the Kampala Declaration on Prison Conditions in Africa was adopted.
The Declaration addresses issues concerning prison conditions, remand prisoners, prison staff and alternative sentencing, as well as making recommendations for the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights and setting out an agreed Plan of Action.
