Human rights and the rule of law

Protection of human rights and support for the rule of law are the very essence of good governance. African countries have overwhelmingly ratified or acceded to the primary international human rights instruments. And Africa has a strong regional human rights framework that in some instances far exceeds the international instruments in their scope and progressive positions.
