Abstract

This critical manual is the first of its kind for the African region and an invaluable resource to human rights practitioners, academics and interested parties worldwide. At a time when human rights in Africa have made many advances, this publication introduces easy-to-use jurisprudence that turns a previously difficult research task into a simple procedure.

Much of the work emanates from primary research and investigation conducted by local research teams in the individual countries and has not been compiled into a single collection before.

It is hoped that this CD-ROM will provide African human rights lawyers with the necessary means to bring cases successfully and help improve the system from within, relying on the rights guaranteed by the individual Constitutions and using regional and international jurisprudence as a tool of interpretation.

'For legislators and lawyers seeking to secure effective protection of human rights in African countries, this book will be an invaluable tool…facilitating comparative reference to the law and practice of other States.' Lord Bingham of Cornhill.
