The launch of this Journal, in 2001, roughly coincided with the transformation of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) into the African Union (AU). By embracing the realisation of human rights as a guiding principle and objective, the AU marks a clear break with its predecessor. Most significantly, the AU Constitutive Act allows for AU-sanctioned intervention in a member state to address the occurrence of genocide and crimes against humanity.
