KAS African Law Study Library

KAS African Law Study Library is a journal which publishes articles written by young scholars from the African continent. The journal deals with practical aspects important for the development of the Rule of Law in an African context. The articles are the result of seminars and conferences organized by the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung’s Rule of Law Program for Sub-Saharan Africa in collaboration with Prof. Dr. Hartmut Hamann and African partner universities. KAS African Law Study Library thus creates a discussion forum for all lawyers interested in Africa and the diverse facets of Rule of Law in interaction with different historical, cultural, economic and political backgrounds. The journal addresses readers from all continents. Starting from Africa, it also wants to give thought-provoking impulse outside of Africa. KAS African Law Study Library is published quarterly and welcomes contributions in English and French. KAS African Law Study Library is available open access at See:
