Abstract

This paper examines the African human rights system, evaluates how it has impacted on the control of Multinational Corporations (MNCs) and evaluates its potentials for the future. The theme is important because it focuses on an under-explored avenue for the control of MNCs. The paper concedes that the African human rights system is relatively young and cannot by itself provide all the answers for the numerous issues relating to the control of MNCs in the continent. However, it is strongly suggested that the regional human rights system could galvanise the otherwise weak host states to be more effective through its emerging approach to state responsibility.
