In 2003, African leaders established the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) to improve their performance by voluntarily allowing monitoring of how they are governing.

Its thematic areas are democracy and good political governance, economic governance and management, corporate governance and socio economic development.

Chenor Bah, Campaign Coordinator for Youth Engagement at the Global Business Coalition for Education, attended a recent event at UN Headquarters in New York to mark the 10th anniversary of the APRM.

UN Radio's Donn Bobb caught up with the youth activist who was once a refugee from Sierra Leone and first asked him about his participation in the event.
