Abstract:This collective volume deals with a number of significant court decisions and legislative developments during the past phase of the African Human Rights and Access to Justice (AHRAJ) programme (2006-2008). The AHRAJ programmatic goal is to seek the 'domestication' of international human rights standards by enabling the capacity of municipal legal systems in sub-Saharan Africa to remedy violations of human rights through judicial remedies. Contributions: Introduction: Human rights: from recognition to implementation, by Magnus Killander; Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation: an international comparative analysis, by James Gondi; The right to health: women's reproductive and sexual health rights, by Monica Mbaru; Freedom of expression: the normative content and the Southern African practice, by Innocent Maja; Domestic application of international human rights norms in forced eviction cases in Africa, by Buhle A. Dube; Taking children's rights litigation beyond national boundaries: the potential role of the ECOWAS Community Court of Justice, by Solomon T. Ebobrah; Effective enforcement of fair trial judgements through re-opening of cases on the basis of contrary judgements of international courts, by Tarisai Mutangi. [ASC Leiden abstract]
