Law, Democracy & Development

The evolution and implementation of democracy, good governance practices, human rights and socio-economic development are critical issues facing South Africa and Africa as a whole. Law interacts with this process in ways that may promote or inhibit it. Law, Democracy & Development addresses this interaction. Our aim is to create a forum in which critical aspects of the process can be debated by scholars, practitioners as well as those concerned with policy-making across the continent, thus contributing to the development of shared knowledge and cooperative effort. The focus is on:
* the way that the law regulates important aspects of the economic process such as trade and industry, labour, the environment, education, training and culture;
* the protection and extension of rights which drive and mould socio-economic development such as political rights, gender rights, children's rights, labour rights and other rights which enable the individual to participate in civil society;
* the influence of international and regional developments in the areas of policy and law on socio-economic development. Law, Democracy & Development is a peer-reviewed journal and has been accredited by the Department of Education for the publication of subsidised research outputs since 2001.
