The role played by the ICJ towards the elaboration of the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights since the process began in 1961 has been widely acknowledged.
As an organisation committed to the promotion and protection of the Rule of Law ail over the world, the ICJ continues to explore ways and means of giving practical effect to its mandate.
Following the establishment of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights (ACHPR), in 1987, the ICJ turned its attention to ensuring the implementation of the Charter’s provisions.
The NGO workshops organised by the ICJ since 1991 prior to the African Commission’s ordinary sessions is one of the practical ways in which we have sought to contribute to the strengthening of this mechanism.
