Abstract

This article examines the question of the exhaustion of focal (or domestic) remedies under article 5 6(5) of the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights. Analysing the jurisprudence of the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights, the contribution examines issues involving the availability and effectiveness of local remedies. Attention is given to issues such as exceptions to the requirement to use local recourse in the event of massive violations, the absence of local remedies and 'ouster clauses'.
