About us

South African Institute of International Affairs:
Governance and APRM Programme

SAIIA has worked extensively since 2002 to mobilise and inform civil society so they can actively participate and drive the APRM process in their countries. SAIIA can assist organisations and governments to understand the APRM processes, how to prepare submissions and how best to influence the process.

We have worked with parliamentarians, governments, civil society and journalists across the continent, including Angola, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritius, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia.

A snapshot of our work:

  • Conducting public information and mobilisation workshops on the APRM
  • Giving seminars on submission making
  • Assisting the compilation of country reports
  • Briefing government and parliament officials on APRM
  • Conducting a feasibility study for Malawi's APRM focal point on the implications of acceding to review. The country subsequently signed up for review.
  • Offering technical support to the media to promote understanding of the APRM process
  • If you need help understanding the process, assistance in making a submission or would like SAIIA assistance in planning a workshop in your country, contact
