The West Africa Civil Society Institute (WACSI) and the Open Society Justice Initiative (OSJI) invites applications for the 2019 Africa Human Rights Litigation Course, to be held in Accra, Ghana from April 10 to 12, 2019.

The curriculum will combine presentations, case studies, exercises, and discussion groups with preparatory work and further reading to ensure full maximum benefit for those attending the course. Participants will be invited to provide information on their work and those concrete examples will help shape the discussion.


  • Bursaries towards expense will be paid for successful candidates.
