Welcome to the UWC Law Faculty research portal

Located in South Africa and rooted in Africa, we have a proud tradition of socially committed research and publication forged in the struggle against apartheid.

This portal highlights our continuing engagement with some of the most critical issues of our time. These range from climate threats and far-reaching changes to the employment landscape, to the plight of children in poverty and questions of legal integration and transnational criminal justice.
