The Domestic Application of the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights

The African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights was adopted as a regional treaty by the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) in 1981. It entered into force, contrary to most expectations, only five years later on 21 October 1986. To date, it has been ratified or acceded to by a total number of 35 African countries, representing approximately two-thirds of the entire membership of the OAU.
