In this study, Kofi Oteng Kufuor challenges the previous scholarship on the origins of the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights. He applies economic and social theory to the African Commission's dynamic treaty interpretation and to the Commission's strategic manipulation of the Rules of Procedure to strengthen the African human rights system. This volume also focuses on the proliferation of human rights law across the continent and the penetration of the system's norms into the domestic jurisdiction of African countries.
