Call for Papers: African Disability Rights Yearbook 2017

The African Disability Rights Yearbook (ADRY) is calling for papers for consideration for publication in 2017.

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. It comprises three 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 ADRY is a peer-reviewed open-access journal. It was launched in 2013 and has been accredited by South African Department of Higher Education and Training. The ADRY can be accessed at http://www.adry.up.ac.za.

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. When preparing articles for submission, contributors are kindly requested to follow the guidelines in the contributor's guide.

Manuscripts should be sent in electronic format to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . An acknowledgment will be returned upon receipt of the submission. The deadline for submitting manuscripts is 30 March 2017.

Inquiries relating to submissions can be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .


Drawing inspiration from the European Yearbook on Disability Law, it is the first publication of its kind that focuses on Africa. It aims to bring into prominence an area traditionally neglected by both African governments and academics. Following in the wake of the adoption 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.

The Yearbook, which is projected to appear annually, is set out in three sections. Section A contains academic articles: Section B consists of country-based research, charting recent developments on disability rights legislation, case law and policy developments in selected African states; and Section C deals with relevant developments in the African Union (AU) and African sub-regional organisations.

The publication of the first issue of the Yearbook in 2013 is a milestone in the engagement on the rights of persons with disabilities by the Centre for Human Rights, Faculty of Law, University of Pretoria, under whose auspices this publication was conceived and is being produced. It marks a highlight in the efforts taken by the Centre over the last few years to bring more academic attention to the rights of persons with disabilities in Africa. These efforts have only been possible with the support of the Open Society foundations, in particular, Open Society Initiative for Southern Africa (OSISA).

The Yearbook is published by the Pretoria University Law Press (PULP).
