This independent report presents the views of a group of researchers and civil society organisations on the implementation of commitments under the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) in Lesotho following the country’s self-assessment (2007–08), review (2009) and recent implementation reports (2011). It is part of an initiative to involve civil society in monitoring and tracking the implementation of APRM-linked programmes.

Under examination were both the status or profile of the APRM as a distinct programme in Lesotho and – in the spirit of engagement which the mechanism seeks to foster – issues raised by the APRM in both the Country Review Report (CRR) and the National Programme of Action (NPoA). In addition, other issues of national importance in terms of governance and development were also addressed.
