Description

The Joint Law Report 2019 is a product of the Declarations of San Jose and Kampala. It is a first effort to present, in a single volume, a selection of the leading decisions delivered by each court in 2019. In addition to their importance in their own right, some of these decisions also serve to illustrate how the courts are increasingly having regard to each other’s approach to human rights protection. The value of this first Joint Law Report 2019 cannot be overstated. On the one hand, there is a similarity in the rights and freedoms protected by the respective treaties governing the work of the three courts. On the other, there is an increasing similarity of issues brought before each of the courts in their respective continents. Therefore, judicial dialogue may serve as a key instrument to enhance the protection of human and peoples’ rights and access to justice of the people under their jurisdictions. The Report is divided in three sections corresponding to the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights, the European Court of Human Rights and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. In every section, each Court’s Registry has selected the cases that represent new standards or innovative developments in its year-2019 jurisprudence. We have kept the structure, format and quotations of each sections corresponding to the ones used by each court. Therefore, they may vary from one section to the other.
