The African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights, established in , was the third regional instrument, after the European and American systems, for the promotion and protection of human rights. This book, drawing on the jurisprudence and practice of the Commission, challenges the applicability of international law to the African situation. Following an examination of the evolution of the African Charter and the status of ratification, Murray questions the opposing dichotomy approach of international law. Her critical analysis covers the notion of the state, the issue of personality and the application of the international law distinctions between war and peace and judicial and amicable disputes. The experience and approach of the African Commission is compared with that of other regional and international bodies, leading to the conclusion that a more holistic approach to international law is required if human rights are to be adequately protected.
The African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights ACHPR is a quasi-judicial body tasked with promoting and protecting human rights and collective peoples' rights throughout the African continent as well as interpreting the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights and considering individual complaints of violations of the Charter. This includes investigating human rights violations, creating and approving programs of action towards encouraging human rights, and set up effect communication between them and states to get first hand information on violations of human rights. This ends up in them drafting up proposals to send up the chain of command to the Assembly of Heads of State and Government and they will act accordingly. The charter has twenty-nine articles that go into great detail on the rights and freedoms that follow a strict code of non-discrimination. Its first members were elected by the OAU's 23rd Assembly of Heads of State and Government in June and the Commission was formally installed for the first time on 2 November of that year. One of these meetings is usually in Banjul, where the Commission's secretariat is located; the other may be in any African state. The commission opened its doors in with promises of the protection and evolution of Africa's human rights.

The state reporting procedure is considered as a dialogue, in which the state concerned and the African Commission exchange their views. The state report is published by the African Commission prior to the session, to give civil society the opportunity to comment on the report of the state.
