The use of ICT in human rights promotion: A case study of the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights

Publisher: DiploFoundation, 2012

Although the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights was created by the Organization of African Unity (OAU) in 1987, the procedures of the Commission is not well known to the majority. 

This paper, by Eliot Nsega, examines the effects of information and communication technology (ICT) in promoting human rights in the African continent, with particular reference to the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights.

The aim is to determine the scope of ICT usage vis-à-vis traditional approaches, especially in the digital age, and to suggest alternatives. 

The paper seeks to render a critical analysis that will lead and co-ordinate a programme of promotional work across the region, including the integration of ICT strategies in its promotional work.
