Kabarak University School of Law is pleased to announce the rebranding of the East Africa Community Law Journal as Jumuiya. This rebranding marks a commitment to community, reflecting the shared aspirations of East African nations. Jumuiya, meaning community in Swahili, relates to the essence of harmonious collaboration and scholarly exploration and embodies the Kabarak commitment to developing Afrocentric and contextually relevant scholarship, along with a call for interdisciplinary research.
Building on the momentum of this transformation, Jumuiya is thrilled to announce its Call for Papers for the 2024 Volume 2.
In 2024, the East African Community will mark 25 years since the adoption of the Treaty Establishing the East African Community in November 1999. Jumuiya invites scholars of regional integration to submit original contributions on the legal, political, economic, and other aspects of the developments in the EAC since 1999.
Apart from the growth of membership and the recent admission of the Republic of Somalia, what areas of development, successes, failures, and missed opportunities have we witnessed since 1999? What recommendations can we provide for the success of our EAC in the coming 25 years?
The Jumuiya 2024 issue presents an opportunity for legal scholars, practitioners, and enthusiasts to contribute to the collective legal wisdom shaping East Africa's future. The scope of the call for papers can be accessed here: (https://journals.kabarak.ac.ke/index.php/eacl/announcement/view/5).
Join us in this celebration of the community and submit your contributions! Be part of Jumuiya's transformative narrative!
