Pan-African Citizens Network (PACIN)
This is the latest move in their transformation that will enable them to meet their mandate as a network of national, regional and continental African civil society organisations and citizens. tThey have established themselves as a critical Pan-Africanist initiative which facilitates a deeper engagement of African civil society organisations and citizens with regional and continental policies and programmes. Their programming has extended to working towards a continent that has its people at its centre and not governments, and where decision-making is driven by, and accountable and accessible to African citizens. They have utilised invited and claimed spaces to foster substantive and procedural changes within regional and continental mechanisms, and to amplify African citizen voices. We have participated in a wide range of activities and programmes including the organising of the signature Citizens Continental Conferences, ground-breaking research and production of policy briefs on pertinent continental issues like Freedom of Movement in Africa. As a leading knowledge centre on the AU, we have also carried out training, campaigns and mobilisation, and cross-continental exchanges.
Their key thematic areas are: Regional Integration; Peace and Security; Gender Equality and
Women`s Rights; Economic Justice; Democracy, Governance and Human Rights.
This transformation spearheaded by the PACIN Board will enable them to expand the scope of our programming that was previously limited to organising around the African Union. Theiir contacts will remain the same for the moment as indicated below and they will continue to keep you appraised of further progress in their efforts towards, regeneration, transformation and innovation!See more
