The discussion is structured in the following order: the status of international law in South Africa is appraised; the drafting history of the Protocol follows; an outline of the articles in the Protocol is done (however, a detailed discussion of these rights falls outside the scope of this article but references are given on each provision for further reading by those interested in in-depth discussions of individual provisions); this is followed by a detailed discussion of the meaning of reservations and interpretative declarations under international law; South Africa's reservations and interpretative declarations to the Protocol and their legal implications are analysed; lastly, conclusions and recommendations are made.
