I'm a Ghanaian lawyer of nearly 20 years standing, with over 15 years experience working on the African human rights system in the areas of litigation, capacity-building and institutional strengthening of the treaty-monitoring mechanisms and civil society organizations. I have been involved in child law and policy work at both national and regional levels.
