Dr. Robert Eno speaks about the significance of the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights in the judicial landscape of Africa.
Eno has been the Registrar of the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights since 2012. The court’s mission is to enhance the protective mandate of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights by strengthening the human rights protection system in Africa and ensuring respect for and compliance with the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights, as well as other international human rights instruments, through judicial decisions.
On 18-19 October 2016, the Africa Group for Justice and Accountability and the Wayamo Foundation hosted International Symposium on the theme, “Towards a System of International Justice” in Arusha, Tanzania. Bettina Ambach interviewed Eno at the seat of the Court in Arusha, Tanzania on 20 October 2016.
The Africa Group Justice Talks are a series of interviews about justice and accountability in Africa and beyond, featuring experts and leaders from the fields of human rights, international criminal law, politics and civil society.
