The content of this issue is divided into three parts. In the first part, special attention is given to the commemoration of 25 years since the entry into force of the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights (African Charter) on 21 October 1986, and 30 years since its adoption, on 27 June 1986, in Nairobi, Kenya. This 'focus' part is made up of selected papers delivered at a conference, co-hosted by the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights (African Commission) and the Centre for Human Rights, and held at the Faculty of Law, University of Pretoria, on 11 July 2011. This conference, entitled 'Thirty years of the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights: Looking forward while looking back', was organised in conjunction with the twentieth African Human Rights Moot Court Competition. The papers contained in this volume were subsequent to their presentations peer-reviewed and reworked for publication.
