Former UN Special Rapporteur on the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and of association, Maina Kaia, launches FOAA Online.

In May 2017, former UN Special Rapporteur (UNSR) on the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and of association, Maina Kaia, launched FOAA Online, which provides easily accessible legal arguments to assist lawyers, activists and judges involved in freedom of peaceful assembly and freedom of association (FOAA) cases.

The tool was launched at a side event to the UN Human Rights Council’s 35 Assembly in Geneva, and was hosted by the Civic Space Initiative, The Open Society Justice Initiative, the American Civil Liberties Union, the American Bar Association, the Pan African Lawyers Union, and the International Network of Civil Liberties Organizations.
