We are delighted to announce that our name has changed from Conference of Western Attorneys General | Africa Alliance Partnership (CWAG|AAP) to Attorney General Alliance | Africa Alliance Partnership (AGA|AAP).
This came about as a result of the formation of the Attorney General Alliance (AGA) from our parent organization the Conference of Western Attorneys General (CWAG), a testament to their expanded reach across the United States and internationally. The name Attorney General Alliance (AGA) represents an association of Attorneys General, federal, state and foreign officials, and public and private sector partners throughout the United States. As CWAG continues to focus predominantly on core western issues, AGA will take on emerging issues in the West and beyond.
Subsequently, the Africa Alliance Partnership takes on the new prefix, ‘Attorney General Alliance’.
Since our inception in 2016, the Africa Alliance Partnership has trained African legal officers and prosecutors in the investigation and prosecution of transnational crimes including Human Trafficking, Money Laundering, Counterfeit Drugs, Cyber Crime, and Wildlife Trafficking. We have also collaborated with African Ministries of Justice, Attorneys General, Solicitors General, and Public Prosecution agencies to share knowledge and experiences in fighting transnational crimes.
We are currently working with government partners in Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Uganda and Zambia, and are set to establish more partnerships throughout Africa.
As the CWAG|AAP programme transitions to AGA|AAP, our focus on combating transnational crimes on the continent remains unwavering.
The Africa Alliance Partnership (AAP) programme will be adapting its branding and online presence to align with the new name: Attorney General Alliance | Africa Alliance Partnership – AGA| AAP.
