African Court on Human and Peoples' Rights: Checklist to ensure the nomination of the highest qualified candidates for judges
In July 2004, the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union (AU Assembly) is expected to take a number of legal, political and operational decisions that would pave the way for the establishment of a functioning African Court. The Assembly would take decisions on a number of matters including the election of eleven judges to the Court. The effectiveness and efficiency of the Court will depend on the personal and professional capacities of the judges. This Checklist sets out Amnesty International's recommendations for states to conduct a transparent and effective nomination process.
