This month the South African Journal of Criminal Justice
published a special issue co-edited by Julian Roberts. This issue of the South African Journal explores sentencing in a number of African jurisdictions including: Botswana; Kenya; Uganda; South Africa; Zambia; Namibia; Ethiopia and Tanzania. As the first collection of essays on sentencing in Africa, this issue constitutes an important step towards filling a significant gap in the international sentencing literature. The essays are based upon presentations made at an international seminar held at the Centre of Criminology, University of Oxford in June 2019.
The seminar was supported by the Faculty Research Support Fund, the Centre of Criminology and a grant from the Africa Oxford Project.
