Abstract

Human rights systems are often assessed on the substantive rights they provide rather than the remedies available when those rights are violated. This article traces the developments of the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights’ remedies regime in fair trial cases between 2015 and 2018. Three typologies are identified and further analysed in light of the remedies regimes of other regional human rights systems. Although the African Court initially relied on the Inter-American system, adapting its approach over time, it remains to be seen in which direction the (r)evolution of the African Court's remedies will go next.
