Public interest litigation as practiced by South African human rights NGOs: any lessons for Ethiopia?

by Badwaza, Yoseph Mulugeta

Abstract (Summary)

This study explored the various forms public interest litigation takes in various legal systems, focusing on the practice in South Africa. An examination of the relevant legal regime in Ethiopia was made with a view to assessing its adequacy to cater for public interest actions and coming up with possible recommendations. Apart from the analysis of the adequacy of the legal framework, an attempt was made to identify other factors that may pose a challenge to the introduction of the system in Ethiopia.
