This issue of the Journal appears at the same time as a significant landmark relating to human rights and democracy in Africa is reached - the entry into force of the African Charter on Democracy, Elections and Governance on 15 February 2012. The milestone of 15 ratifications was reached five years after the adoption of the Charter in January 2007. As is the case with any treaty, the entry into force of the Democracy Charter becomes meaningful only if its provisions are effectively domesticated and implemented in practice.
