State Compliance with the Recommendations of the African Commission on
Human and Peoples' Rights, 1994-2004             Frans Viljoen and Lirette Louw      1
As part of its protective mandate, the African Commission on Human and Peo-
pIes' Rights decides individual complaints alleging violations of the African
Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights by state parties. This article charts com-
pliance with the Commission's recommendations concerning violations under
the individual complaints procedure, highlighting the limited direct effect of the
Charter and identifying the main factors that have affected state compliance.
The future role of the Commission and the African Union in improving com-
pliance is also considered.
