Reviews conducted under the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) are intended to occur at regular intervals, helping countries conduct an ongoing assessment of their governance. However, after 12 years of the APRM’s existence, no country has yet conducted a full ‘second-generation’ review. Settling on a format for these reviews is of considerable strategic importance, since it will set a precedent for future reviews. However, weaknesses in the first-generation reviews demand that some adaptations be made. The second-generation reviews also offer an opportunity to examine the implementation of countries’ National Programmes of Action (NPoAs), a critical part of the system yet one sometimes overlooked.

National Governing Councils (NGCs are the lynchpin of the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM). Situated between the state’s political leadership and the technical institutions carrying out the research, NGCs are crucial to the development of a meaningful Country Self-Assessment Report and viable National Programmes of Action(NPoAs). They provide oversight for all subsequent stages of the APRM. To achieve maximum impact, NGCs need to be free of political interference, have clear and concise mandates, and receive meaningful technical support. To date, a lack of consistency across APRM countries on the protocols for NGCs, including their scope of responsibility and sources of funding, has tended to hinder progress.
