Publication Document Type


Primary Content

Reproductive and sexual rights, which are guaranteed in constitutions and in international and regional human rights treaties, have no impact if they are not recognized and enforced by national-level courts. Legal Grounds: Sexual and Reproductive Rights in Sub-Saharan African Courts Volume III continues to provide much-needed information about whether and how national courts of African countries apply human rights laws in decisions that affect the rights of women and others. The case summaries and thematic highlights can be useful resources for advocates seeking to further develop litigation, advocacy, and capacity building strategies.
