dc.description.abstractThe African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights is leading an initiative to draft a disability protocol. This is particularly important for persons with mental disability as the draft protocol makes specific provisions guaranteeing their right to personal liberty, a right currently unavailable to them under article 6 of the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights as interpreted by the African Commission in Purohit & Moore v The Gambia. This article analyses the changes introduced by the draft protocol and examines to what extent they provide realistic prospects for the enjoyment of that right by persons with mental disability.en
