This international event was a success. It hosted nearly 200 people from France, Gabon as well as from Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Presidents of the Bars of Cameroon and Kinshasa were present.
The work of the Campus, under the guidance of the Prime Minister, and in the presence of representatives of the Minister of Justice, the President of the Constitutional Court, the Attorney General and the Ambassador of France in Gabon, allowed the participants to enrich their knowledge of economic issues in the region, particularity in the digital and telecommunications fields.
Issues related to human rights, such as access to health care, detention of minors and the inheritance of widows were also addressed.
Finally, the discussions showed the courage of our Gabonese counterparts who fight to be able to exercise their profession and to ensure the rights of litigants.
