Call for Papers: African Disability Rights Yearbook (ADRY) 2024. Apply below.

The African Disability Rights Yearbook (ADRY) is calling for papers for consideration for publication in Section A of the ADRY in 2024. The ADRY publishes once a year with a focus on disability rights issues and developments of contemporary concern to persons with disabilities on the African continent. The ADRY is published by the Pretoria University Law Press (PULP) as a peer-reviewed open-access journal that is accredited by South African Department of Higher Education and Training.

The African Disability Rights Yearbook (ADRY) Overview

The ADRY comprises four sections – Section A containing doctrinal articles and for which we are calling for papers;
Section B containing country-focused overviews of developments in disability rights in selected African countries; and Section C containing brief overviews of developments at the African regional and sub-regional levels. The fourth section is a book review section.
Articles for Section A of the ADRY – the subject of this Call – should be original and not under consideration for publication by another journal. An article should not exceed 10 000 words, including footnote references. The introduction to the article should be preceded by a summary of not more than 250 words. All articles must comply with the PULP style guidelines.
When preparing articles for submission, contributors are advised to follow the guidelines which are available on the ADRY website at www.adry.up.ac.za/submissions

The African Disability Rights Yearbook aims to advance disability scholarship. Coming in the wake of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, it is the first peer-reviewed journal to focus exclusively on disability as human rights on the African continent. It provides an annual forum for scholarly analysis on issues pertaining to the human rights of persons with disabilities. It is also a source for country-based reports as well as commentaries on recent developments in the field of disability rights in the African region.
