In search of peace and justice offers articles about the very complex efforts undertaken by communities in various parts of Africa to secure justice and peace at the local level – sometimes in contrast to states, which ignore the local desire for justice or fail to provide their citizens with what a state is expected to provide, and sometimes in tandem with the institutions of the state. Traditional and informal justice systems have attracted the interest of scholars and international organizations alike.
Manfred O Hinz is a professor at the University of Bremen and the University of Namibia (UNAM), specializing in public law, jurisprudence and legal anthropology. He Holds the UNESCO Chair: Human Rights and Democracy at the Human Rights and Documentation Centre of UNAM’s Faculty of Law.
Clever Mapaure, a UNAM graduate, holds the degrees of BJuris, LLB and LLM. He was one of the first students to read for the Specialised Certificate in Customary Law. He is now enrolled for his doctorate in law.
