The year 2006 marks 25 years since the adoption of the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights, in Nairobi, Kenya, on 27 June 1981, and 20 years since its entry into force, on 21 October 1986. The African Human Rights Law Journal, edited by the Centre for Human Rights, University of Pretoria and published by Juta Law, South Africa, has, since being launched in 2001, focused on the African regional human rights system.
The African Human Rights Law Journal is accredited with the South African Department of Education, and is listed in the internationally acclaimed International Bibliography of the Social Sciences (IBSS).
Commemorating the 20 years in the life of the African Charter, the African Human Rights Law Journal will devote its second issue of 2006 to the first 20 years of the African Charter. Contributions on any aspect of the jurisprudential development of substantive rights in the African Charter are therefore invited. The style guidelines of the Journal are attached hereto. Please prepare submissions in line with these guidelines and submit to us by 31 July 2006. Note that contributions should ideally not exceed 10 000 words.
