Chapter Summary

A comprehensive review on the stature of the East African Court of Justice (EACJ) is yet to function as a human rights court. The three East African Nations of Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania (the Partner States), revived the Community in a different form through the enactment, on 30 November 1999, of the East African Community Treaty. The Treaty provides for Fundamental Principles that shall govern the achievement of the objectives of the Community. They include, among others, good governance, including adherence to the principles of democracy, the rule of law, accountability, transparency, social justice, equal opportunities, gender equality, as well as the recognition, promotion and protection of human and people's rights in accordance with the provisions of the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights (ACHPR).

Keywords: ACHPR; East African Court of Justice (EACJ); human rights court
