The African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights (ACHPR) is an Organ of the African Union (AU) established by the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights (the African Charter). The ACHPR’s Secretariat is headquartered in Banjul, The Gambia. It is the oldest and most accessible continental human rights treaty body in Africa. The ACHPR is mandated to promote and protect human and peoples’ rights in Africa, interpret the African Charter and to perform any other tasks which may be entrusted to it by the AU Assembly of Heads of State and Government. In this regard, the ACHPR carries out sensitization, public mobilization and information dissemination through seminars, symposia, conferences, workshops and missions in execution of its human rights promotion mandate. Within the framework of its protection mandate, the ACHPR ensures protection of human and peoples’ rights through its communication/human rights complaints handling procedure, amicable settlement of disputes, referral of cases to the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights, state reporting (including consideration of Non-Governmental Organizations’ shadow reports), provisional measures, urgent appeals and other activities of special rapporteurs and working groups and missions. With regards to the interpretation of the African Charter, the ACHPR is mandated to interpret the provisions of the Charter upon a request by a State Party, Organs of the AU or individuals.
