AFEX aims at becoming the undisputable voice on free expression in Africa through increased effectiveness of its members. In view of this, AFEX works around three key areas which aim at promoting and defending freedom of Expression in Africa.
Network Development – extending support to, and developing the capacity of African organisations that have a potential to become IFEX members and raising awareness and promoting issues of free expression in Africa. This will include undertaking missions to African countries where free expression violations occur and issuing joint statements on such challenges.
Policy Advocacy and Targeted Information Sharing – carrying out strategic and sustainable information sharing among AFEX members and the global community, encouraging wider dissemination of this information through all media platforms.
Evidence Based Research – carrying out research on free expression issues and to use such research and survey outputs for advocacy by members.
