As with most other think tanks, the Institute will disseminate its policy recommendations primarily by engaging African governments, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, the private sector, individuals as well as members of the public interested in its work. To facilitate the presentation of our research results, the Institute will partner with legal or other publishers to produce monographs, treatises, books, reports, periodicals (a law journal, newsletters, etc.), serial publications, brochures, information sheets, fact sheets and electronic media, including CD-ROMS, manuals, tapes and videos.

African Journal of Legal Studies

The African Journal of Legal Studies will be a refereed electronic journal with limited print editions focusing on good governance, democracy and rule of law issues in Africa as analyzed by lawyers, including academics and judges, economists, political scientists, sociologists and other social scientists from different parts of the world. Published by the Institute, The African Journal of Legal Studies will place equal emphasis on the theoretical and applied aspects of good governance and rule of law. Thus, in addition to articles, the journal will contain reports on recent conferences and workshops as well as sections for book reviews and recent publications. Articles published in the journal may be in English or French. Abstracts of all articles will be translated into both languages. Electronic copies of the journal will be available in Portable Document Format at journal.africalawinstitute.org. Limited print copies will be produced in March, June, September and December of each year.

ALawI News

Each quarter, the Institute will publish ALawI News, an electronic newsletter with limited print editions. The newsletter will contain information about the Institute’s programming and other activities. ALawI News will be e-mailed to all members of the Institute and will be available for downloading from this web site in Portable Document Format.
