Abstract

As an emergent concept, there is a need to examine and explore African Union (AU) law from different perspectives in order to broaden its understanding. It is also a concept that is set to open up a panoply of debate from a variety of perspectives in years to come. The chapter thus explores AU law as an emergent legal order in the context of international constitutionalization and federalism. It considers AU law as a legal system and the interplay of that system with the idea of federalism and constitutionalization. It looks at the roles of Constitutive of the African Union, the African Union Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights and the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights as expressions of constitutionalization and federalism at the continental level.
