About the Authors
  • The Protection of Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in Africa critiques the three main models of constitutionally protecting economic, social and cultural rights in Africa - direct, indirect and hybrid models. It examines the choices that states have made, how the models have worked, whether they have been tested in litigation and the jurisprudence that has arisen. The book analyses the protection of the economic, social and cultural rights in a range of African countries: Angola, Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa and Uganda. Leading legal academics explore how these rights feature at the regional and sub-regional levels, as well as the link between domestic and international mechanisms of enforcement.

    • Offers new knowledge of the protection of economic, social and cultural rights in Africa, providing essential material for academics, lawyers, judges, students, civil society activists and policy-makers
    • Reveals the links between domestic, regional and international protection, providing readers with an important resource on comparative jurisprudence
    • Chapters from leading African scholars give readers up-to-date and accurate information, not just about economic, social and cultural rights, but the jurisdictions covered and how they work in practice
