The review and assessment in respect of the APRM was conducted in four substantive areas namely:

  • Democracy and political governance;
  • Economic governance and management;
  • Corporate governance; and
  • Socio-economic development

The assessment was based on a questionnaire that was developed by the African Union that covered the four thematic areas.
