Regional Courts and Human Rights in the Developing World
There are important advocacy groups that favour greater respect for human rights at the (sub) regional level in the form of courts in many parts of the developing world. Many important developments are taking place in terms of human rights at the (sub) regional level in the Southern Hemisphere that have not (yet) attracted due traction. While regional adjudication is more advanced in some regions than in others, efforts at institutionalising human rights have been pursued across all the continents. It is a welcome trend, but one which needs to be evaluated within the context of shared strengths, opportunities, weaknesses and real threats.
