In this contribution, which was delivered as a speech to the participants of the 15th African Human Rights Moot Court Competition, one of the members of the African Commission, Commissioner Nyanduga, provides an overview of the major successes, challenges and prospects of the African Commission. After providing a historical background, Commissioner Nyanduga highlights the SERAC case as one of the Commission's significant successes. He concludes that, although the Commission remains hampered by numerous constraints, such as limited resources and poor state reporting, the establishment of an African Court, in particular, holds the prospect of improved enforcement of human rights on the African continent.
