This chapter examines the role of the African Union in the realization of human rights. It focuses on the principal human rights treaty adopted by the African Union—the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights—and the main organs—the African Commission and the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights—that have been established to ensure its implementation. The chapter also considers the complementary African Peer Review Mechanism.
