CIGJ congratulates our former Laureate Postdoctoral Fellow, Takele Bulto, on the release of his new book, The Extraterritorial Application of the Human Right to Water in Africa. Takele’s book will be launched in Melbourne today by Professor Carolyn Evans, Dean of the University of Melbourne’s Law School.
International human rights law has only recently concerned itself with water. InThe Extraterritorial Application of the Human Right to Water in Africa, Takele challenges the established analytic boundaries of international water law and international human rights law. He shows that human rights law and the international law of watercourses can apply in tandem to protect non-national non-residents in Africa and beyond.
Takele was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Centre until 2012 and continues to be involved in our activities as a Visiting Fellow. In 2012 he accepted a position at the University of Canberra, where he is currently Assistant Professor of Law. We wish you well for the launch today Takele!
