INVITATION FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
Interested persons are invited to submit abstracts for articles and case discussions proposing to make ground-breaking academic style contributions to the human rights discourse in Africa. Although the contributions are expected to take a continental (African) approach to the issues they cover, country-specific or sub-regional level case studies that relate to the African regional human rights system will also be considered. In so far as methodology is concerned, contributions adopting multidisciplinary and empirical approaches are highly encouraged.
