Everyone who has tried to do systematic research on human rights law in Africa will know how difficult it is to find sources. The unfortunate consequence of this state of affairs is that it is almost impossible for an indigenous African human rights jurisprudence to develop. As a result human rights in Africa are often seen at worst as a left-over of colonialism and at best as a foreign visitor without permanent roots.;This text is aimed at helping to solve this problem. The series, edited by three eminent human rights lawyers from Africa, appears annually and gives an overview of the current state of human rights law on the continent, on the UN, regional and national levels.;This first volume contains an exposition of the status of UN human rights treaties in Africa, a reprint of the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights and the human rights provisions of the constitutions of all African countries.
