We are academic researchers from Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada, interested in the workings of international courts in Africa and comparative studies. We have been invited by the American Journal of International Law to participate in a symposium issue that focuses on the role of the secretariats and registries of various courts (regions) to the effectiveness of the regimes. For us, our task is the extremely important registry of the African court. We are therefore kindly seeking your kind assistance with respect to the completion of a sample questionnaire There are sixteen (16) questions in this survey. You are expected to answer ALL the questions, which will take approximately 10 to 20 minutes.
