GI-ESCR, in collaboration with IGED Africa, has created a short information note explaining the background and content of the General Comment No. 6 on the Maputo Protocol which was adopted in 2020. The document aims at supporting civil society in Africa to advocate for women’s rights in marriage and property rights within their countries and beyond.

Civil society plays a key role in ensuring that the contents of the General Comment are widely distributed and promoted to influence the regional understanding of women’s marriage and property rights. Our new publication offers many different insights and ways to use the General Comment as well as a short guide on how to lead or support the development of further General Comments that will be crucial to strengthen the human rights mechanisms in Africa.
