Research, Collaborate, Change

At AU Watch, we believe that everything starts with research. We are passionate about independent, data-driven and evidence-based, collaboratively-produced research as a catalyst for change. At Au Watch research remains the cornerstone of everything we do. It informs our strategic decisions as to where we devote our time, energy and resources, and we hope that by making all our research freely available, it can be a resource for other watchdog groups and women’s NGOs, the Government, academics and the media.

AU Watch research on gender and spans:
• Primary research and literature reviews
• Key learnings and case studies from our various community programmes
• Best practice guides

We are fortunate to count some of Africa’s most prestigious organisations and individuals among our research partners from the African Commission, the African Court to leading universities all over the continent.

We are indebted to our Governors …. and volunteers for their generous support for our research programme over the and their subject matter expertise.

Six key pillars underscore our research work:

  • Multi-disciplinary approach

Our research and engagement go hand in hand: all our engagements are rooted in solid research competence and feed into ongoing research – and ultimately to published academic work.
