At its 36th Ordinary Session held from 23 November to 7 December 2004 in Dakar, Senegal, the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights (African Commission) adopted Resolution 73 on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in Africa. One of the decisions coming from Resolution 73was the establishment of a working group composed of members of the African Commission and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) with a mandate to develop and propose to the African Commission draft principles and guidelines on economic, social and cultural rights. These draft guidelines are now in place, and the African Network of Constitutional Lawyers' (ANCL) Working Group on Social and Economic Rights in Africa made them the focus of its workshop held on 8 and 9 September 2010 in Cape Town, South Africa.
