Item description for Human Rights Law in Africa 1996 (Human Rights Law in Africa) (v. 1) by Christof Heyns...
Everyone who has tried to do systematic research on human rights law in Africa will know how difficult it is to find sources. The unfortunate consequence of this state of affairs is that it is almost impossible for an indigenous African human rights jurisprudence to develop. As a result human rights in Africa are often seen at worst as a left-over of colonialism and at best as a foreign visitor without permanent roots. The Human Rights Law in Africa Series, of which this is the first volume, is aimed at helping to solve this problem. The Series, which will be edited by three eminent human rights lawyers from Africa, will appear annually and give an overview of the current state of human rights law on the continent, on the UN, regional and national levels. The first volume in this Series contains an exposition of the status of UN human rights treaties in Africa, a reprint of the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights and the human rights provisions of the constitutions of all African countries. Subsequent volumes will also contain commentary on the legislative, judicial and other aspects of African human rights law. Each volume will therefore constitute an independent, comprehensive and up-to-date exposition of the most important aspects of African human rights law. The Series should be of great assistance to all those interested in human rights and human rights law in Africa and the world at large.
