SADC member states have identified peace, security and the promotion of human rights as key concerns within the region. The Declaration and Treaty of SADC calls on SADC and its member states to act in accordance with several principles which include solidarity, peace, and security as well as human rights, democracy, and the rule of law. Human Rights Watch believes that ensuring respect for human rights and the rule of law in all Southern African countries is essential to peace and security in the region.
