This chapter focuses on the overdue creation of an African court dealing with human rights. It considers whether the court's mandate is sufficiently robust to meet the significant challenges to the enjoyment of human rights that exist in Africa, particularly in light of the latest reforms. It examines both the African Court on Human and Peoples' Rights and the Human Rights Section of the African Court of Justice and Human Rights.
