Discrimination without Distinction of Any Kind?
Snapshot of African civil society demands versus Addis Ababa Declaration This paper is a snapshot comparative analysis of the Civil Society African Common Position on International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) and the official Addis Ababa Declaration. It provides a brief examination of the differences and similarities between these two documents, which were both produced during the African ICPD review process. It also seeks to examine where the Addis Declaration fell short of CSO demands and then whether country positions on human rights commitments such as the Maputo Protocol affected their position on the Addis Declaration. This paper seeks to provide a snapshot of some of the obvious gaps in human, sexual and LGBT rights and accountability between what civil society demanded and what the Addis outcome provided.
