Engagement with regional and global human rights protection mechanisms
CSMA engages the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights (ACHPR) and the United Nations (UN) human rights protection mechanisms through submitting communications, letters of allegation and monitoring Zimbabwe’s adherence to conventions that the State is party to. Further, CSMA keenly follows Zimbabwe’s implementation of UN Human Rights Council and treaty bodies recommendations.
Promoting access to justice
Through community human rights education workshops, media advocacy and it’s network of volunteer pare-legals, CSMA promotes access to justice for marginalised and vulnerable groups.
Promoting access to national identity document and citizenship acquisition
CSMA supports national identity document acquisition and citizenship by Zimbabweans of foreign descent who were disenfranchised by the Zimbabwe Citizenship Act: 2001 (Amended). Even though the 2013 Zimbabwe Constitution restores the citizenship of the majority of people who were affected, many face challenges at the Registrar General’s office when applying for national identity and travel documents.
Community legal empowerment / human rights education
CSMA conducts legal empowerment workshops in under-resourced urban and rural communities. Our human rights education workshops aim to empower marginalised and vulnerable groups with strategies on how they can use and shape the law.
Human rights documentation
By means of film, audio recordings, reports and other publications, CSMA, documents human rights challenges and violations.
Peace building and conflict management
Through alternative dispute resolution methods, namely, mediation and negotiation, CSMA, implements peacemaking and peacebuilding activities in the communities it serves.
