About African Affairs Committee
African Affairs Committee African Affairs Committee The African Affairs Committee is committed to strengthening the rule of law and promoting social and economic development in Africa. The Committee closely follows legal, political, economic and social developments in Africa. The primary focus of the Committee is to investigate, understand and report on legal and policy developments on the Continent. In so doing, the Committee regularly sponsors Africa-related speakers and events, many of which are open to the public. Similarly, subcommittees investigate and report on specific issues (such as African business development, gender issues and the administration of justice) to judicial or legal organizations, government officials and other relevant decision-makers. The Committee aspires to build lasting relationships with African leaders and institutions. Meetings with preeminent African jurists, government officials, and other key persons are frequently conducted. These meetings give the Committee insight into current events from an African perspective. The Committee also aims to foster meaningful connections with other individuals and organizations with an interest in Africa, and regularly meets with US-based professional, governmental and advocacy groups.
