In July 2006, The African Union launched Africa's first court which enables States and individuals to challenge governments on violations of the human rights set out in the African Charter on Human and People's Rights.

The African Court on Human and People's Rights, which was established on paper in 1998, is based in the Tanzanian capital Arusha.

The Court has yet to begin its work, but updates will be available on its website.

The Court can rule on any international treaty or law ratified by African States. States, AU organs, individuals and non-governmental organisations can all request decisions.
