The African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights (AFCtHPR) was established by the 1998 Protocol to the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights on the Establishment of an African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights (the Protocol). The Protocol entered into force on 25 January 2004, paving the way for the establishment of the AFCtHPR. It is the continent’s first judicial body and is responsible for the protection of human and peoples’ rights in Africa. The Court’s main mandate is to complement the protective mandate of the Banjul-based African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights (the Commission). The seat of the Court is in Arusha, United Republic of Tanzania.
In order to update its database, the Court is calling for applications from qualified freelance translators-revisers in Arabic, English, French, Portuguese, Spanish and Swahili, who are nationals of African Union Member countries.
Freelance translators-revisers are invited to express interest in providing online and face-to-face services (e.g., during sessions and other meetings of the Court). They will be awarded contracts for the translation and revision of documents from the Court.
