These papers are taken from a weekend workshop at Cardiff Law School on 25 April, 1995. Taking its starting point from the South African experience with regard to human rights and the Constitution, this book explores in-depth the struggle in that country for self-determination.;The argument then broadens, encompassing the human rights commissions gender equality, and the Charter of Rights experience in Canada, European Law for the protection of minorities, and the freedom to protest.
