EBOBRAH, Solomon T. Human rights developments in African sub-regional economic communities during 2009. Afr. hum. rights law j. [online]. 2010, vol.10, n.1, pp.233-264. ISSN 1996-2096.

The year 2009 saw important judicial and non-juridical human rights developments within the framework of three of the most active regional economic communities in Africa. During the year, each of the three communities engaged in some form of standard-setting in the field of human rights. Further, in East Africa, thematic meetings relevant to human rights were convened. In Southern Africa and West Africa, the communities embarked on activities aimed at strengthening democracy. Sub-regional courts in Southern Africa and West Africa were also involved in human rights cases during 2009. These developments are reviewed to highlight their overall significance in the context of human rights in Africa.
