This edition of Law, Democracy and Development covers a wide range of topics, from the principles applicable to the international transfer of children via the adoption process, to the balancing of a mortgagee's security interest with a homeowner's security of tenure. The diversity of sources of law covered in the articles is remarkable, including the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights, the South African Constitution, international conventions in respect of children's rights, national legislation, and decisions of the South African Constitutional Court and the Supreme Court of Appeal as well as other courts in Africa. The policies that guide these laws or flow from them are also closely examined in the articles. In addition, there are articles of a primarily theoretical nature.
