oa Comparative and International Law Journal of Southern Africa - On African socialism and natural law thinking

 

Abstract

The topic of this article is how modern African socialism relates to ethical legal thinking. The theses I wish to put to the reader are three in number. The first is the rather obvious one that a defence of African socialism as an ideology requires an ethical foundation. My second thesis is that, in fact, African socialism provides for an African natural law doctrine and a concomitant principle of African legality. And my third thesis is that the principle of African legality is quite reconcilable with the rule of law.
