Posted on March 25, 2019

The Special Collections Book of the Week this week is:

A Guide to the African Human Rights System: celebrating 30 years since the entry into force of the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights, 1986-2016 by the University of Pretoria Centre for Human Rights.

This guide was launched on 21 October 2016, as part of the African Unions’ year of Human Rights, with a focus on the rights of women. It provides an overview of the developments related to the African charter on Human and People’s Rights, its supervisory body, the African Commission on Human and People’s Rights, as well as the African charter on the rights and Welfare of the Child and its supervisory body. The guide aims to both chart the most salient historical developments and provide an accessible introduction to the African human rights system.
