[en] The Chapter examines the various regional and sub-regional judicial mechanisms in Africa highlighting their potential for effective inter-state dispute settlement. It explains the lack of inter-state disputes before Africa’s supranational courts despite the existence of multiple mechanisms providing them with such jurisdiction, and identifies ways through which the potential of these mechanisms can be harnessed to provide effective avenues for the settlement of disputes between African States.
