The Pan-African Conference on Penal and Prison Reform in Africa was held in Burkina Faso in September 2002.
This report, Protecting Prisoners’ Rights in Southern Africa: An Emerging Pattern, outlines different mechanisms discussed at the conference that have been put in place in recognition and protection of prisoners’ rights in some African countries. These initiatives range from international instruments and regional measures to national mechanisms and favourable correctional services’ legislation. It also examines how courts have been called upon to intervene in the protection of prisoners’ rights in different countries in the region.
