Africa is a unique continent for many reasons: because of its unparalleled natural beauty, its strategic location and the way it shaped the path of international law, the continent is subject to great interests. But is there an African legal culture or viewpoint and if so, what are their unique characteristics? How does it view tradition, the role of religion, the importance of family and community, or the responsibility that comes with property? How does the African international human rights system differ from its American and European counterparts? Josephat Kilonzo, advisor to the Supreme Court of Kenya and lecturer at Strathmore University will walk us through these and similar questions.
