The Court of Justice of the African Union is intended to be the “principal judicial organ of the Union” (Protocol of the Court of Justice of the African Union, Article 2.2) with authority to rule on disputes over interpretation of AU treaties. A protocol to set up the Court of Justice was adopted in 2003, but has not yet entered into force: it is likely to be superseded by a protocol creating a Court of Justice and Human Rights, which will incorporate the already established African Court on Human and Peoples' Rights and have two chambers -- one for general legal matters and one for rulings on the human rights treaties. The draft merger protocol has been under discussion for several years and is likely to be adopted during 2008. The court will be based in Arusha, Tanzania.v • d • eSupranationalismand World governmenttopics Theory Supranationalism · Federalism · Confederation · Intergovernmentalism · Anti-nationalism · Globalization · Democratic mundialization · PaxInternational bodies United Nations (UN) · Interpol · International Monetary Fund (IMF) · World Bank Group (WBG) · World Trade Organization (WTO)Regional bodies European Union (EU) · Arab League · African Union (AU) · Union of South American Nations (Unasur/Unasul) · Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) · Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) · Organization of American States (OAS) · South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC)International
