African Charter on Rights & Duties Enforcement Mechanisms



Osita C. Eze

ISBN: 978-2-88931-413-3
Series number: African Law Series No. 10
Publication: 2021

The development of the African legal system is at the core of this work, which aims at explaining the relationship between political, social and cultural rights and the African Charter of the Rights of Men and Peoples. Assessing the impact of the African Charter supposes a precise description of how national regimes contribute to the human rights. Prior to the Charter, civil and political rights were more important than socio-economic and cultural rights. It is the theoretical and practical aim of this book to show the evolution of this situation. Dr Eze shows that the primary responsibility of national institutions and agents of law enforcement is as important, in the management of human and peoples 'rights, as the input of the regional courts or the mandate of the Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights.
