Your Call! Sending Copies of Justice in Conflict (the Book) to African Libraries and Universities


As readers will know, Oxford University Press (OUP) and I have hatched a plan to send copies of my book, Justice in Conflict – The Effects of the International Criminal Court’s Interventions on Ending Wars and Building Peace, to libraries and universities across Africa. The falls in line with our commitment to give something back to the countries and communities we study. OUP has set aside 200 copies of the book and all of the royalties that I receive will go to paying for the costs of shipping the books.

But we need your help. I have come up with a list of institutions where the book will be sent and I am hoping that you, as readers, will have some ideas of your own. So, with that said, please do share any ideas you may have in the comment section below. I will include them in the list of institutions to send a copy of the book to.

Thanks as always,

    The obvious choices in Uganda are Makerere University, The Uganda Society, and at the very least Gulu University if not also the small universities in other regions. The Memory Documentation and Peace Centre in Kitgum has a little library that could use some additions as well.

  3. Dr Helen Scanlon says:

    I’d be very grateful for a copy for the justice and transformation Programme at the university of Cape Town, South Africa. I’d love to put it on our reading list!

  4. Beitel says:

    DAAD programme library at the University of the Western Cape is a must. Also library at Stellenbosch University.

    United World College Waterford Kamhlaba Swaziland

    I’ve recently talked exactly on this issue of the scarcity of reading sources in some of the African countries with the organizers of the ICC Moot Court Competition at Leiden University. Around 50 teams signed up this year from around the world (!) and some teams barely have a basic manual in international public law or international criminal law. I am sure they’d be thrilled to have a copy of your book Mark. So, I would encourage you to get in touch with the Leiden organizers of the ICC Moot Court to have a list of universities they know are really lacking in resources. Cudos on the terrific initiative!

    It would be wondeful to have a copy for the University of Burundi.

  8. zimbabwe ezekiel guti university in harare Zimbabwe would appreciate receiving a copy of this book

    Hey Mark, I love your blog. I don’t know if this is already on your list, but your book would be a perfect contribution to the library of the West African Research Center (WARC) in Dakar, Senegal. I am a former center director and the library is a wonderful resource for local scholars. They accept contributions in both English and French (and beyond). Here is a link to the center, and there is a page on the library and donations.

    Let me know if you need a contact and I will put you in touch with the current director.
    Best, Leigh Swigart

    Uganda Christian University in Mukono is trying to incorporate more of an international criminal justice and human rights component into their law programme. I’m sure they would be grateful!

  11. I’m sure the Balme Library at the University of Ghana, Legon would appreciate a copy for their collection (if it’s not already on your list). Keep up the great work.
