The Pretoria University Law Press (PULP) invites you to the virtual book launch of Exploring the link between poverty and human rights in Africa.

The Pretoria University Law Press (PULP) invites you to the virtual book launch of Exploring the link between poverty and human rights in Africa

This book, edited by Ebenezer Durojaye and Gladys Mirugi-Mukundi, addresses poverty, one of the important issues confronting Africa, from a multi-disciplinary approach. With contributions from eminent scholars from diverse backgrounds, the book explores poverty from a human rights perspective. Its central message is that poverty is not necessarily a failure on the part of an individual, but rather caused by the actions or inactions of governments, which are often exacerbated by structural inequalities in many African societies. This in turn requires a more pragmatic approach grounded in respect for human rights. Exploring the link between poverty and human rights in Africa will be useful to researchers, policymakers, students, activists and others interested in addressing poverty.
