This yearbook provides an intellectual forum for the systematic analysis and scientific dissection of issues of international law as they apply to Africa, as well as Africa's contribution to the progressive development of international law.;It contributes to the promotion, acceptance of and respect for the principles of international law, as well as to the encouragement of the teaching, study, dissemination and wider appreciations of international law in Africa. A clear articulation of Africa's views on the various aspects of international law based on the present realities of the continent as well as on Africa's civilization, culture, philosophy and history should contribute to a better understanding among nations.;The yearbook plays an important role in examining the tensions underlying the State in Africa, and by shedding more light on the causes of the fragility of African State institutions so as to facilitate the identification of appropriate remedies. The tension and interrelationships among issues such as territorial integrity, self determination, ethnic diversity and nation-building are constantly addressed. Development, human rights and democratization in Africa are also the subject of continuous attention and examination.;The structure of this first volume is: a special theme, individual articles, notes and comments, book reviews and basic documents. The yearbook should attract more contributions in the future from African international lawyers currently teaching or practising in Africa. Most of those who have worked on the first volume are now working outside the continent. They are, however, all determined to see to it that this intellectual forum will serve first and foremost the teachers and practitioners of international law in Africa.
