About this book

This edited collection explores key human rights themes and situates them in the context of developments in the Africa continent. It examines critical debates in human rights and social justice, bringing together conceptually and empirically rich contributions from leading thinkers in human rights and African studies. The volume contributes to human rights debates focusing on international human rights norms, theories of human rights, the right to water treaty, transitional justice, conflict and gender-based violence, the right to development, and the question of human rights in the context of China’s deepening role in Africa. Consequently, it marks an important scholarly intervention on timely issues in the field of human rights as they pertain to contemporary Africa.
