About the publication

This is the fourth volume of the Report of judgments, orders and advisory opinions of the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights. This volume covers decisions of 2020.

The volume includes all the Judgments, including Separate and Dissenting Opinions, Advisory Opinions, Rulings, Decisions, Procedural Orders and Orders for Provisional Measures adopted by the Court during the period under review.

Each case has a headnote setting out a brief summary of the case followed by keywords indicating the paragraphs of the case in which the Court discusses the issue. A subject index at the start of the reports indicates which cases discuss a particular issue. This index is divided into sections on general principles and procedure, and substantive issues.

This fourth volume of the African Court Law Report includes 59 decisions of the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights. Decisions are sorted chronologically with decisions dealing with the same case (eg procedural decisions, orders for provisional measures, merits judgments and reparations judgments) sorted together. A table of cases setting out the sequence of the decisions in the Report is followed by an alphabetical table of cases. The Report also includes a subject index, divided into sections on procedure and substantive rights. This is followed by lists of instruments cited and cases cited. These lists show which of the decisions include reference in the main judgment to specific articles in international instruments and case law from international courts and quasi-judicial bodies.

Each case includes a chapeau with a brief summary of the case together with keywords and paragraph numbers where the issue is discussed by the Court or in a separate opinion.

The year before AfCLR in the case citation indicates the year of the decision, the number before AfCLR the volume number (4), while the number after AfCLR indicates the page number in this Report.
