The Draft Treaty for the Establishment of the East African Community

by Sengondo E.A. Mvungi

Scholars at the University of Dar es Salaam conducted an interdisciplinary study on the long awaited treaty of the establishment of the East African Community, which finally came into force in the year 2000. The study engages critically with the limitations of the Community, and highlights areas where much work is still to be done, and also pays tributes to the principles and idealism behind the Community, and some of its achievements thus far. The study highlights parallels with older agreements, analyses the relative merits and demerits of devolving sovereign powers to the new body, addresses problems with the jurisdiction of the East African Court of Justice, and draws attention to the urgent needs to establish an East African Human Rights Court, and Convention.
