Where Law Meets Reality |Forging African Traditional Justice

By Melanie Nathan, July 13, 2012.If anyone would like to review this for my BLOG, please let me know. I have yet to read it. It looks like an important topic that we could all learn a lot from, especially the context of LGBTI lives. I wonder if it makes reference to LGBTI issues at all and in what context.  I have a busy two months so all reader comments are most welcome.

Kindly find below information on a new publication entitled ‘Where Law Meets Reality: Forging African Transitional Justice‘. The book is a product of the inaugural Institute for African Transitional Justice (2010), which was co-hosted by the Refugee Law Project (RLP) and the African Transitional Justice Research Network (ATJRN).
