Alice Mogwe

President, International Federation for Human Rights and Director, DITSHWANELO – The Botswana Centre for Human Rights
Alice Mogwe has been a human rights activist since the 1990s. Her academic background is in law, public policy, African studies and mediation. Her work has included active engagement domestically, regionally and internationally with civil society, governments and regional and international human rights bodies. In December 2018, she was the first civil society representative to address the UN General Assembly on behalf of over 250 Human Rights Defenders globally. Her leadership style is based on the respect of the dignity, equality and human rights of every person. Alice is able to enable participatory dialogue in FIDH, civil society organisations, inter-faith gatherings and with institutions. Alice’s unwavering determination has been manifest in her work for justice and human rights with human rights defenders, including indigenous peoples, women, the LGBTI+ communities; children; migrants and refugees; for the abolition of the death penalty; and demanding accountability from the extractive industry and the State. Alice is committed to the development of activists. She has seeded, nurtured and supported several civil society organisations and mentored many young activists who were later at the forefront of human rights struggles. She is married and has three children.
