The University of Pretoria, working with a global network of research partners (including in Cambridge, Geneva and other African countries), recently established a research programme that focuses on violence reduction and securing the right to life in Africa.
Tiyanjana Maluwa (Penn State Univ. - Law), Max du Plessis (Univ. of KwaZulu-Natal - Law), & Dire Tladi (Univ. of Pretoria - Law) have published The Pursuit of a Brave New World in International Law: Essays in Honour of John Dugard (Brill | Nijhoff 2017).
The Institute for International and Comparative Law in Africa (ICLA) in the Faculty of Law of the University of Pretoria wishes to invite interested persons to apply for the position of country reporter for any of the countries indicated below for Oxford’s CCW.
The Institute for International and Comparative Law in Africa (ICLA) is a research institute located in the Faculty of Law of the University of Pretoria. The ICLA was established at the beginning of 2011 and is located in a renovated double-story house next to the Law Building on the Hatfield Campus. The Institute houses an extensive collection of antique furniture and art and also serves as the Christo Coetzee museum.
Drawing on the extensive networks that the Faculty has established over many years in Africa and beyond, the objective of the ICLA is to become a first port of call for those who wish to engage in legal research and legal reform in Africa involving comparative or international law at the advanced level. Professor Christof Heyns has been appointed as Director.
