In the discussions and conclusions of the preceding chapters, some of the questions posed at the outset of this book have been addressed. Instead of revisiting and summarizing those answers, this chapter considers some of the most salient features of the overview of international human rights law in Africa. It outlines seven layers of state commitment for international human rights norms and the procedures for their implementation. Starting with standard setting and ending with enforcement, these layers represent the mounting levels of commitment required.
