Litigating Before The African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights: A Practice Manual

We have developed this manual following requests from lawyers who have benefited from training on using the African Protocol on the Rights of Women when litigating on human rights violations experienced by women.

Equality Now and the Solidarity for African Women’s Rights (SOAWR) coalition have convened training for lawyers since July 2011 and in the past five years have enhanced the capacity of over 400 lawyers from 31 countries in litigating on women’s rights.

This manual will therefore lend further support to these and other lawyers who would like to bring cases to the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights.
