ICNL’s resources and information on Gambia.


ICNL supports legislative reform of the Public Order Act and the Non-Governmental Organizations Act by providing comments on the laws. We are supporting The Association of NGOs to build civil society capacity to analyze laws affecting assembly and association rights and advocate effectively for legal reforms. ICNL has worked with the Institute for Human Rights and Development in Africa to train police and lawyers on protecting assembly rights, and with the African Centre for Democracy and Human Rights Studies to engage parliamentarians and other state authorities so that legal reforms are in line with international standards and best practice.
