Discussion papers on the judgments of the African Court
We are launching a series of discussion papers on the judgments of the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights.
We are providing a space for critical thought and analysis on the African Court’s jurisprudence, which is very much in its formative stages.
We will be calling on members to write commentaries in their language of choice: Arabic, French, Portuguese or English.
Over time, the selection of commentaries on the African Court’s judgments and processes will be edited into a digest.
The first paper is a commentary on the recent judgment in the matter of Femi Falana v The African Union of June 2012. The commentary is published in the original language in which it was written: French. Please note that the author owns copyright to the written work.
