Executive Committee

PALU established its Executive Committee in Arusha, Tanzania, in January 2010; this was in order to be proximate to — and provide a platform for its members to engage — the nascent African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights, which also has its seat in Arusha.

There are processes in place to upgrade this Court to be the African Court of Justice and Human Rights, which will thus handle interstate and, possibly, Regional Economic Community matters, in addition to its important human and peoples rights protective mandate. There are also African Union Assembly Decisions towards extending the African Court’s jurisdiction to encompass a range of international crimes, which would further increase its profile, pre-eminence and possible value to African lawyers, human rights activists, business people and citizens in general.
