This week, Mary Robinson, the former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, spoke out in concern of the status of human rights in Africa. According to the Ibrahim Index of African Governance, there are clear indications that the space for the work civil society does in Africa is closing, and that human rights and development activism is not finding support amongst governments.
