The national implementation of international human rights law pertaining to children with disabilities in selected jurisdictions in Africa
Chilemba, Enoch MacDonnell
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis considers two jurisdictions, namely Malawi and South Africa, and attributes the problem to the lack of appropriate national implementation of the applicable human rights law by these states. Consequently, the study is based on the underlying assumption that one of the main ways of addressing this problem is for African states to undertake measures that comply with international standards for ensuring the appropriate national implementation of the applicable international human rights law.
