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 examining Africa's contribution to the progressive development of international law. It aims to contribute 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. It features an explanation 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.;This book examines the tensions underlying the State in Africa and aims to shed 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 attention and examination. The structure of the first two volumes - consisting of a special theme, individual articles, notes and comments, book reviews and basic documents - will be reflected as far as possible in future volumes. New features and areas of study will also be added.
