For three days, key stakeholders from across Africa will address one of the pressing challenges to democratic progress on the continent - the erosion of the constitutional rule of law by extending and amending presidential term limits. Panel discussions will allow leaders to share their experiences and tell their stories to underscore real-life experiences and case studies of democratic progress made in Africa and challenges still to be overcome. Participants will issue a Declaration of Principles as a tool to empower Africans to hold leaders accountable and have them adhere to constitutional term limits.
