Chapter Summary

This is the first chapter of this book on the African regional human rights system. It contains the Table of Contents, Preface, Foreword, List of Contributors, African Court and African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights Cases, African Union Instruments, Abbreviations, and Activity Reports of the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights 1987-2010. The African human rights system has made some remarkable developments since the adoption of the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights (African Charter), the cornerstone of the African human rights system, in June 1981. The year 2011 marked the 30th anniversary of the adoption of the African Charter. The range of opinions and perspectives, combined with the authors' critical analysis and expertise, make this book a unique and significant contribution to the African regional human rights system.
