About this resource:

The Caselaw Analyser was developed together with the Institute for Human Rights and Development in Africa (IHRDA). It contains the case law from all regional African human rights mechanisms.

The Caselaw Analyser is a web-based system for human rights litigators to research caselaw in order to prepare their cases. It allows them to easily browse inter-related decisions, to quickly access the primary case law for a given type of violation, to highlight and comment relevant sections of a decision, and to share their commentary with their colleagues and work collaboratively on case research.

Court decisions often reference specific paragraphs of other decisions, which in turn reference other decisions. Caselaw Analyser allows you to easily navigate from one decision to the next. And because it uses inline-browsing to jump straight to the quoted paragraph, you don’t even lose your page. Also, all incoming and outgoing citations are listed next to the text of the decision.
