n Comparative and International Law Journal of Southern Africa - Reflections on the practices and experiences of African states in the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) and the Universal Periodic Review Mechanism (UPR) : a human rights perspective

Volume 45, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0010-4051



This article focuses on the nature of political engagements among African states within the APRM and the UPR. It focuses specifically on matters that African countries raise among each other under peer review within the discourse of human rights, democracy, and governance; and whether such engagements are worthwhile. The article asserts that African states have hardly used opportunities provided by the APRM and UPR to engage one another critically and frankly on their human rights situations.
