Global Human Rights Instruments

Volume 7: The African Court of Human Rights and Peoples' Rights- Basic Documents

Edited by: S. Fennell

Human rights translate into international norms that help to protect people from all over the world from severe political, legal, and social abuses. Law and morale are the safeguards of these inalienable rights. Human rights invoke strong claims and even stronger sentiments. To ensure them, governments are directly addressed, requiring compliance and enforcement. The volumes in this series give a detailed and accurate overview of the instruments that have been created over the years to safeguard human rights. The contents range from universal human rights instruments to continental human rights instruments and discuss the direct enforcement of human rights by international courts and tribunals. The goal behind these extensive studies is to provide the international legal public with a reliable detailed resource of prominent human rights instruments. In this seventh volume, the basic documents of the African Court of Human Rights and Peoples' Rights are presented, as well as applicable regional legislation.
