Summary "This book brings together contributions from emerging African and internationally recognized scholars in the field of international human rights law and policy in general and women and minority rights in particular. Its primary aim is to further the development of African scholarship and to reinforce the international discourse on women and minority rights in a time of rapid change. The book analyses the various challenges that impede the promotion, protection and realization of the rights of women, girls and other minority groups in Africa. It calls for the building of strong institutions as well as the involvement of both state and non-state actors in advancing and safeguarding the rights of women and minority groups in Africa through legal reforms and robust institutional mechanisms for the enforcement of relevant laws and policies. The book is of great interest to scholars, practitioners, students, government officials and women and minority rights organizations in Africa and beyond." -- Provided by publisher.
