Erika de Wet

Professor De Wet's research examines the legal consequences that the exercising of public power by international organisations such as the United Nations and the African Union have for states and for those living in their territories. This includes the problems states face in implementing binding decisions of international organisations while giving due effect to other international obligations and constitutional principles of fundamental importance. She was the founding Co-Director of the Institute for International and Comparative Law in Africa (ICLA) at UP. From October 2015 until the end of March 2016 she will be a fellow at the Käte Hamburger Centre for Advanced Study (‘Law as Culture’) in Bonn. She has held various national and international editorial positions and is a member of the Scientific Advisory Board for Development Policy of the Max Planck Foundation for International Peace and the Rule of Law, as well as of the General Council of the International Society of Public Law (ICON-S).

Professor Erika de Wet holds the DST-NRF SARChI Chair of International Constitutional Law in the Faculty of Law, is Professor of International Law at UP.
