Item description for Africa's Long Road to Rights: Reflections on the 20th anniversary of the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights by Hakima Abbas...
2007 marked the 21st anniversary of the entry into force of the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights and the establishment of the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights. It was a moment both for celebration and for reflection on the achievements and the limitations of the charter and its implementation. The purpose of this book, which accompanies a special issue of the award-winning electronic newsletter Pambazuka News, is not only to mark the 20th anniversary, but also to popularise understanding of the work of the commission. The essays in this book review the achievements of the commission since its establishment, with contributions from Hakima Abbas, Korir Sing'Oei Abraham, Roselynn Musa , Mireille Affa'a Mindzie, Otto Saki, as well as interviews with Commissioner Bahame Tom Mukirya Nyanduga, Special Rapporteur on Refugees and Displaced Persons in Africa, and Commissioner Faith Pansy Tlakula, Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression in Africa. The articles appear in English in the first part of the book with French translations in the second.
