1979, as Association des jeunes juristes africains. Also referred to as International Society for African Jurists. Current name adopted 1983.
Instigate reflection from which would emerge juridical systems adapted to socio-economic and cultural realities of Africa; favour development of a current of opinion serving to promote and protect the rights of man, and individual and collective freedom, a necessary condition for autocentric and integral development of the African peoples. Given the critical situation of human rights in Africa, oppose in general: the death penalty; imprisonment for offences of opinion; torture, ill-treatment and arbitrary arrest.
