Our areas of work
The political advocacy work of EurAc develops along the following three thematic priorities:
The advocacy work of EurAc also follows few cross-cutting priorities, such as the reinforcement of the role and participation of local non-state actors, including civil society organizations and of the role of women, as well as the promotion and protection of human rights and finally the fight against impunity.
Our mission of advocacy is based on the new EurAc Policy Charter, adopted by the General Assembly in December 2015.
Political and security tensions in the Great Lakes region threaten the stability, security and development in the region as a whole. EurAc develops its analysis and advocacy around issues of civilian protection, support for security programs, including the reform of the security sector (SSR), and support for peace processes.
The democratisation processes in the Great Lakes region face many political and security obstacles and tensions, particularly around the organization of electoral cycles. EurAc develops its expertise and conducts advocacy work urging the EU to enhance its policies in defense of the rule of law, the good governance and the respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms.
The sustainable management of natural resources can constitute a significant lever for reducing poverty and for regional stability. Unfortunately, local populations generally undergo the negative impacts of this exploitation.
EurAc calls for a more transparent and sustainable management of resources, so as to make it favorable to the interests of the most vulnerable populations.
