AFRICAN COURT REGIONAL SENSITIZATION SEMINAR ON THE PROMOTION OF THE COURT FOR WEST AFRICA: ABIDJAN, REPUBLIC OF COTE D’IVOIRE

On Wednesday, 8 May 2013, at the IVOTEL Hotel in Abidjan, Republic of Cote d’Ivoire, the African Court of Human and Peoples’ Rights in collaboration with the Government of Cote d’Ivoire opened a regional sensitization seminar on the promotion of the Court in West Africa, with the theme: “The African Court of Human and Peoples’ Rights: your new partner to reinforce the protection of human rights in Africa.”

The seminar was carried out with the objectives among others, to reinforce the protection of human rights in Africa through sensitizing the public on the activities of the Court, encouraging countries that have not yet done so, to ratify the protocol establishing the African Court of Human and Peoples’ Rights and/or to make the declaration provided for in Article 34 (6) of the Protocol establishing the Court, allowing individuals and NGOs direct access to the Court after exhaustion of local remedies; to encourage the public to use the Court to settle human rights disputes; and encourage States to seek the Court’s advisory opinion on important human rights issues.
