Human rights are "commonly understood as inalienable fundamental rights to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being .

In their fight for independence, African peoples drew upon human rights standards to justify their struggle. On account of colonization, African people suffered from years of oppression and gross human rights abuses. As such, they used their struggle to expose these abuses and fight for their liberation. The sacrifices made by such countries. But many years after independence, the situation of human rights in Africa is generally reported to be poor, and it is seen as an area of grave concern according to the UN, governmental, and non-governmental observers. Even if , many nations have at least nominally recognized basic human rights for all citizens, in practice these are not always recognized, and have created reasonably independent judiciaries. Extensive human rights abuses still occur in several parts of Africa, often under the oversight of the state. Most of such violations can be attributed to political instability, often as a 'side effect' of civil war. Notable countries with reported major violations include, but are not limited to, the Sudan, and Côte d'Ivoire. Reported violations include extrajudicial execution, mutilation, and rape.

Across the continent, we can witness a lot of youth movements demanding the respect of human rights. The Arab Spring in 2011 , the Yen a Marre movement in Senegal are some of them. But beyond marchs and protests, what can African young people do to advance Human Rights ?

In this discussion we will try to analyze how young people can better work to advance Human Rights in Africa and what are some of the challenges they can face in their efforts .
