The African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights and International Law

The special format forced the Commission to shorten the content of the session all the while preserving the main topics and ensuring civil society active participation. Watch it here and here. Though Cameroon , Niger and Malawi were initially scheduled to be reviewed during the 66th session, only Mauritius was reviewed in the end. The Commission held a special session on the major human rights issues arising in the context of COVID and measures undertaken by the Commission in response. This session gave an opportunity to members of the Commission to make reflections on actions that have been taken in their various capacities and address human rights challenges caused by COVID on the continent. This included the various statements made and specific calls made to State to ensure they put human rights at the core of their response to the pandemic. This was especially the case regarding in Kenya for which the Commission received reports of evictions affecting in particular, marginalized communities, notably the Ogiek and the Sengwer communities, as well as people in the Kariobangi North Sewerage settlement.

The function of the African Commission will be outlined as well as the roles and relationship between the institutions that aid in the implementation of the Charter. In addition, the basic nature of the African state will be unveiled in order to demonstrate the pre-eminence of state sovereignty, self-determination and cultural tradition that subsequently hinder the constructive application of the African Charter. Finally, some distinct features of the Charter will be highlighted in order to determine whether this legal instrument has made a significant contribution in shaping a continental human rights culture. Although it is evident that the African Charter is tailored specifically to the African context, it is contentious due to its strong emphasis on social, economic and cultural rights and the inadequate coverage of civil and political rights. An example of this inadequacy is the lack of explicit recognition of the right to privacy and the right against forced or compulsory labour.

Part I: Rights and Duties. Chapter I: Human and Peoples' Rights. Article 1: Obligations of Member States. Article 2: Right to Freedom from Discrimination.

The African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights ACHPR is a quasi-judicial body tasked with promoting and protecting human rights and collective peoples' rights throughout the African continent as well as interpreting the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights and considering individual complaints of violations of the Charter. This includes investigating human rights violations, creating and approving programs of action towards encouraging human rights, and set up effect communication between them and states to get first hand information on violations of human rights. This ends up in them drafting up proposals to send up the chain of command to the Assembly of Heads of State and Government and they will act accordingly. The charter has twenty-nine articles that go into great detail on the rights and freedoms that follow a strict code of non-discrimination.

African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights

Under the ACHPR, states are required to submit reports to the African Commission on measures taken to ensure that the rights enshrined in the African Charter are being implemented. The state reporting procedure is considered as a dialogue, in which the state concerned and the African Commission exchange their views. The state report is published by the African Commission prior to the session, to give civil society the opportunity to comment on the report of the state. So far, conscientious objection to military service has not been addressed by the African Commission. It might then include the issue in its Concluding Observations and make recommendations to the State concerned. Information has to be submitted to the African Commission at least 60 days before the examination of a State's report.

 Решайтесь, приятель! - с издевкой в голосе сказал Хейл.  - Мы уходим или нет? - Его руки клещами сжимали горло Сьюзан. Стратмор знал, что, если он сейчас достанет мобильник и позвонит в службу безопасности, Сьюзан будет жить.

 - Стратмор хмыкнул, раздумывая, как поступить, потом, по-видимому, также решил не раскачивать лодку и произнес: - Мисс Флетчер, можно поговорить с вами минутку. За дверью. - Да, конечно… сэр.
