The African Charter on Democracy, Elections and Governance is a roadmap setting out international standards on democracy and good governance on the African continent.
It was adopted by the African Union on january 30, 2007 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The charter promotes democratic rule and peaceful transfer of power through free, fair and transparent elections, representative systems of government, human rights and rule of law.
The charter demands commitment to the rejection of unconstitutional changes that lead to conflict and instability, the principles of good governance and a joined effort via the African Union and the Regional Economic Communities to promote and consolidate democracy.
ActionAid and Media Foundation For West Africa have produced an introductory, simplified version of the ACDEG, which you can read here.
The African Governance Architecture is a platform for the strengthening of good governance and democracy in Africa. It was established by the African Union Commission as a forum for dialogue based on a set of shared values and objectives, further laid out in guiding documents such as the African Charter on Democracy, Elections and Governance.
The African Governance Architecture seeks to expand cooperation and coordination between African Union (AU) organs, institutions, Regional Economic Communities (RECs), and member states.
It is a forum for the advancement of human and people’s rights, good governance, free and fair elections as well as the dissemination of knowledge on shared African values.
