Abstract: Regional Economic Communities are much involved in the protection of human rights to change the human rights system of those states having poor human rights record and to facilitate the trade relations among the member states and the integration as well. The treaties of many of the RECs made reference to the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights as a common standard to achieve higher normative standard through out the regions. Furthermore, some RECs involve in the enforcement of human rights for violations under the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights and other Conventions that a state concerned is party in addition to the communities’ treaties, conventions and protocols. This thesis examines the enforcement of human rights through the judicial organs of the RECs; particularly the ECOWAS Community Court of Justice, and the Tribunal of SADC in comparison with the African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights.
