Overview

Since the establishment of the African Union in 2001, there has been a proliferation of regional institutions that are relevant to human rights in Africa. These include the Pan African Parliament, the Peace and Security Council, the Economic, Social and Cultural Council and the African Peer Review Mechanism of the New Partnership for Africa's Development. This book discusses the links between these institutions, and the 20 years of jurisprudence stemming from the entry into force of the major African human rights instrument, the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights.
