Delivering Justice Jackson Memorial Lecture:
A major objective of the conference will be to engage in a broad ranging conversation among scholars, practitioners and policy-makers to examine and evaluate how the international and regional regimes and institutions in Africa are producing new narratives of justice and how best they can make a real difference in responding to the challenges facing African peoples and governments.
Abstracts and papers are invited on a broad range of themes including but limited to the fledgling jurisprudence of African regional integration tribunals; Africa and the international criminal court; the continued viability of one of reigning paradigms of African international law that Africa is an innovator and generator of institutions and rules of international law, rather than its passive recipient.
