BIEGON, Japhet  y  KILLANDER, Magnus. Human rights developments in the African Union during 2008. Afr. hum. rights law j. [online]. 2009, vol.9, n.1, pp.295-311. ISSN 1996-2096.

The year 2008 saw significant developments towards harnessing the institutional framework for the promotion and protection of human rights in Africa. More financial resources were allocated to the system. The African Commission and Court adopted interim Rules of Procedure which, by the end of the year, were still not harmonised to enable the Commission to submit its first case to the Court. The slow progress towards making the Court operational impedes the impact of the African human rights system. Another impediment is the inadequate response of AU policy organs to gross human rights violations, undemocratic rule, and the question of impunity.
