    BANJUL, GAMBIA — The Institute for Human Rights and Development in Africa (IHRDA) is a pan-African non-governmental organization that works to promote awareness of human rights and improve their effectiveness. The proposed project aims to address the knowledge gap that hinders the proper prosecution and adjudication of conflict and post-conflict-related SGBV cases in the region by providing a repository of precedent-setting case law that will guide prosecutors and judges in the proper application of SGBV laws and policies. The project reflects HRIJ's strategy of promoting accountability for atrocity crimes at the national and regional levels.
