Law, Politics and Rights: Essays in Memory of Kader Asmal presents critical perspectives on various inter-related themes in the areas of human rights, constitutionalism, democracy, international law, political and cultural rights and identity. The discussions reflect the wide-ranging interests and subjects that kader Asmal engaged with as a legal scholar, human rights campaigner and politician of international renown throughout his life.

Kader Asmal is perhaps best known for his political career as one of the most senior members of the African National Congress and a government minister in post-apartheid South Africa. Less well known to the general public is his equally immense contribution to international human rights law and policy, recognised with the award of the Prix UNESCO in 1983, through more than three decades of an international academic career and legal activism. This book is a reminder of the enduring relevance of the issues and causes he espoused and advocated.

Contributors include Maitseo Bolaane, John Dugard, Richard Harvey, Federico Lenzerini, Tiyanjana Maluwa, Obiora Chinedu Okafor, Nsongurua Udombana, Muna Ndulo, Max du Plessis, Nico Steytler, Gerald Whyte, and Abdulqawi Yusuf.
