The Place of Democracy and the Rule of Law in SADC
This chapter seeks to locate democracy and the rule of law in the SADC legal framework. It starts by examining SADC’s primary legal document—the SADC Treaty. This chapter also discusses relevant judicial decisions of the SADC Tribunal that address the relevance of these normative values in SADC. This chapter also carries an overview, from both a theoretical and empirical perspective, of the place of democracy, and the rule of law in international organisations.
