“African International Courts”

In the course of the last decades, several international courts have been established, either within the African Union [AU], or within the Regional Economic Communities [RECs], and even within some smaller sub- regional organizations.
The proposed research aims at reviewing the way those Courts are conceived, both with respect to the way they are constituted, their composition, the status of their members, as well as their role and powers. From that analysis, one would see, inter alia, whether or not there are typical African international courts, or whether the general configuration of those courts is just similar to that of classic international courts.
