Abstract:In March 2006 a three-day intergovernmental conference on the issue of social protection was held in Livingstone, Zambia. Representatives of thirteen African governments examined new ways to tackle poverty and promote the human rights of the poorest people in Africa. During the conference especially older people living in Africa (aged 60 years or older) were identified as one of the most vulnerable groups of society. At the end of the conference, the delegates formulated the 'Livingstone Call for Action', a plan of action on social development. This master thesis provides a critical examination of the tangible action taken by the Rwandan, Malawian and Ugandan Governments after attending the Conference. [Thesis abstract]
