JOLGA 2015 CoverJournal of Ocean Law and Governance in Africa

The adoption of the 2050 Africa Integrated Maritime (AIM) Strategy by the AU Assembly of Heads of State and Government on the 31st of January 2014 marked a sea change in Africa’s consciousness of its maritime domain. The implementation of the Strategy will require tackling a vast range of governance and regulatory challenges. While doing so, numerous opportunities will arise to develop the fields of marine law, maritime law and ocean governance to support the sustainable growth of the African blue economy. 

Contributions relating to marine law, maritime law or ocean governance in Africa are invited for publication in iiLwandle Zethu (“Our Seas” in Xhosa), the new Journal of Ocean Law and Governance in Africa (JOLGA), published by Juta and Company.

The first two issues of JOLGA have been published (please use the link on the right to download the order form).

The deadline for submission of contributions for the 2018 issue, which may take the form of articles, notes, updates or book reviews, is the 28th of February 2018.
