Projet: "The African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights has been the subject of much criticism over the course of its existence, and the influence of politics has often called into question the work of this body, which is judged to be relatively independent. However, despite the entry into force of the protocol establishing the African Court on Human and Peoples' Rights in 2004, the African Commission continues to be the main body of the African human rights system. The very restrictive conditions for referral to the Court do not allow the victims to assert their rights before this body. In fact, in order to better fulfill its protection mission, the African Commission, during its existence, relaxed its procedures, thus, improving its referral and its capacity action. " Nisrine Eba Nguema, The African Commission on Human and Peoples’ rights and its protection mission of the human rights.
