ICJ Review no. 7 (December 1971)

The decision to devote this number of the review predominantly to events concerning Africa was prompted by two important conferences held this year. The conclusions of both conferences are reproduced in full in this issue.

The first conference, on ‘African legal process and the individual’, was convened in April in Addis Ababa by the UN Economic Commission for Africa. It is believed to be the first African conference to be convened by Africans dealing with human rights.

The second was the international conference in Colorado in September on ‘Justice and the individual: the rule of law under current pressures’, convened by the ICJ as guests of the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies. One of the principal themes discussed was racial discrimination, with particular reference to South Africa.
