Arusha: Africa's Hague
The new African Court of Human and People's Rights, which was established as Africa's new regional international court, will sit in Arusha, Tanzania. This is not exactly a surprise. The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda already sits there and its mandate will expire in 2008, so it makes a lot of sense to take advantage of the existing infrastructure there. International criminal justice can be a non-trivial economic engine. Arusha is well on its way to becoming The Hague South.
