The African Human Rights Law Reports contains legal decisions of relevance to human rights law in Africa. These include selected domestic decisions from the whole continent, as well as the decisions of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights and the United Nations treaty bodies, dealing with African countries. The Reports are fully indexed, to facilitate access and make research easy.

The Reports are indispensable for anyone dealing with human rights in Africa – legal practitioners, judges, international and domestic civil servants, members of civil society and academics - and captures the evolving human rights jurisprudence of the African continent. The Reports are edited at the Centre for Human Rights at the University of Pretoria, in cooperation with the Institute for Human Rights and Development in Africa, Banjul, The Gambia.

The Reports are published annually. So far four volumes have been published, covering cases decided until 2003. Cases from national courts that would be of interest to include in future issues of the Reports must be brought to the attention of the Editors at ahrlr@up.ac.za. The Reports are also published in French.
