Mapping New Boundaries In International Law
The principal aim of this work is to provide a forum for leading international lawyers with experience and interest in Africa to address a broad range of in tellectual challenges concerning the contribution of African states and people s to international law. As such, the volume addresses orthodox topics of inter national law - such as jurisdiction and intervention - but tackles them from a n African perspective, and seeks to ask whether, in each case, the African per spective is unique or affirms existing arrangements of international law. The book cannot come at a more important time. While international legal discourse has been captured by the challenge of terrorism since September 11, 2001, the re are clear signs that other issues are returning to the fore. Political inte rest in Africa has undergone a global revival, and the OAU has been transforme d into the African Union. Infrastructural challenges, along with those taking place in regional contexts, have effectively mapped a new politico-legal lands cape for Africa. This, and more, is explored, and the key normative questions are addressed in a series of essays by leading Africanist scholars.
