The right to development in Africa is both urgent and mandatory. As this book points out, the components of this right include: fostering respect for the rule of law, defeating corruption, tapping into African cultures and philosophies, advancing gender justice, and promoting the right to education. This thought-provoking book is useful to lawyers, academics, policymakers, and students.
