Performing Judicial Authority in the Lower Courts Performing Judicial Authority in the Lower Courts Новинка

Performing Judicial Authority in the Lower Courts

Judicial authority is constituted by everyday practices of individual judicial officers, balancing the obligations of formal law and procedure with the distinctive interactional demands of lower courts. Performing Judicial Authority in the Lower Courts draws on extensive original, independent empirical data to identify different ways judicial officers approach and experience their work. It theorizes the meanings of these variations for the legitimate performance of judicial authority. The central theoretical and empirical finding presented in this book is the incomplete fit between conventional norms of judicial performance, emphasizing detachment and impersonality, and the practical, day-to-day judicial work in high volume, time-pressured lower courts. Understanding the judicial officer as the crucial link between formal abstract law, the legal institution of the court and the practical tasks of the courtroom, generates a more complete theory of judicial legitimacy which includes the manner in which judicial officers present themselves and communicate their decisions in court.

The European Court of Justice and the EU Constitutional Order: Essays in Judicial Protection

This book assesses the influence of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) on the governance of the EU and concentrates on the following themes: the function of the ECJ as the Supreme Court of the Union; judicial independence; the protection of the individual in the EU legal order; the relationship between the ECJ and the other branches of government at national and Union level and the relationship between the ECJ and the General Court, the European Court of Human Rights, and national courts. It assesses the impact of the EU Reform Treaty on judicial protection and covers, among other topics, Union competence, direct effect, preliminary references, locus standi for individuals, a statistical analysis of judicial review and judicial activism.

A Positivist Reexamination of Judicial Review A Positivist Reexamination of Judicial Review Новинка

A Positivist Reexamination of Judicial Review

As the President of the Supreme Court of Israel, Aharon Barak, said, “This century is the century of judicial review”. Although this is a well known fact, judicial review is persistently under scrutiny. It is analyzed both from the political philosophy and from the legal philosophy. Since both disciplines inform Constitutional Law, sometimes judicial review is justified on the grounds of politics and sometimes it is justified on the name of the Law, obscuring its study. The lack of a method to distinguish between political philosophy based theories from legal philosophy based theories increases this problem. I propose to use the distinction between form and substance as a method. By using it, chapter one exposes the main substantive theories regarding judicial review, while chapter two exposes a classical formal legal philosophy. Chapter three exposes the distinction itself between form and substance and applies it to the examination of Marbury v. Madison, while chapter four focuses in constructing a formal justification of judicial review. The results should help shed some light about judicial review to anyone interested in Constitutional Law and Legal Theory.
The Economics of Ottoman Justice The Economics of Ottoman Justice Новинка

The Economics of Ottoman Justice

During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the Ottoman Empire endured long periods of warfare, facing intense financial pressures and new international mercantile and monetary trends. The Empire also experienced major political-administrative restructuring and socioeconomic transformations. In the context of this tumultuous change, The Economics of Ottoman Justice examines Ottoman legal practices and the sharia court's operations to reflect on the judicial system and provincial relationships. Metin Cosgel and Bogac Ergene provide a systematic depiction of socio-legal interactions, identifying how different social, economic, gender and religious groups used the court, how they settled their disputes, and which factors contributed to their success at trial. Using an economic approach, Cosgel and Ergene offer rare insights into the role of power differences in judicial interactions, and into the reproduction of communal hierarchies in court, and demonstrate how court use patterns changed over time.

State High Court Judges

Revision with unchanged content. Do institutional structures and environmental factors affect judicial decision-making on state supreme courts? This book examines the impact of institutional and political contexts on state high court decisions in all fifty states from 1995-1997. In additon to basic structural considersations such as retention methods, workload issues and term lengths, the political preferences of both elite and mass actors are incorporated into a strategic model of judicial behavior. This question is important as state high courts have a tremendous impact on law in the United States. In terms of both content and percentages, state courts have a greater influence over the state of American law than federal courts. Yet, there has been relatively little research conducted examining judicial behavior on state high courts. This study uses multiple empirical techniques including a formal model, Probit statistical analysis, and case studies in order to present a complete picture of contemporary decisions on state courts. This book will appeal to scholars of judicial behavior as well as individuals interested in state politics, institutional models of decision-making, and strategic behavior.

The EEA and the EFTA Court: Decentred Integration

The EEA Agreement extends the free movement of persons, goods, services and capital to the EEA/EFTA States: Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. It provides for equal conditions of competition and abolishes discrimination on grounds of nationality in all 31 EEA States. The successful operation of the EEA depends upon a two-pillar system of supervision involving the European Commission and the EFTA Surveillance Authority. A two-pillar structure has also been established in respect of judicial control with the EFTA Court operating in parallel to the Court of Justice of the European Union. The EFTA Court, which celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2014, has jurisdiction with regard to EFTA States which are parties to the EEA Agreement. The jurisdiction of the EFTA Court accordingly corresponds to the jurisdiction of the Court of Justice of the European Union over EU Member States in matters of EEA law. The essays in this collection, assembled to celebrate the 20 year landmark, and written by members of the Court and external experts, review the successes and shortcomings of the Court, its interface with EU law, and the prospects for its future development.
The European Arrest Warrant The European Arrest Warrant Новинка

The European Arrest Warrant

Ensuring an area of freedom, security and justice represents one of the most important tasks undertaken by the European Union. In this context, the European arrest warrant is at this moment an important form of judicial cooperation in criminal matters in the European Union. Based on these facts, in this book, besides analyzing the European arrest warrant, we also examined the recognition and the enforcement of judicial decisions taken by the competent judicial authorities of another Member State. The European arrest warrant institution was examined from the perspective of Romanian legislation, doctrine and jurisprudence. Designed in an accessible manner for the reader, in this material there are also presented the views from the Romanian and European doctrine and the decisions of the Romanian court or of the ECHR. Given that there are highlighted some critical observations as well, the book may be useful to the academic environment, to the European or Romanian legislator, to the judicial authorities of the Member States directly involved in the complex task of judicial cooperation in criminal matters from the European Union space.

The Appeal

Book Description Publication Date: November 18, 2008 In a crowded courtroom in Mississippi, a jury returns a shocking verdict against a chemical company accused of dumping toxic waste into a small town's water supply, causing the worst "cancer cluster" in history. The company appeals to the Mississippi Supreme Court, whose nine justices will one day either approve the verdict or reverse it. Who are the nine? How will they vote? Can one be replaced before the case is ultimately decided? The chemical company is owned by a Wall Street predator named Carl Trudeau, and Mr. Trudeau is convinced the Court is not friendly enough. With judicial elections looming, he decides to try to purchase himself a seat on the Court. The cost is a few million dollars, a drop in the bucket for a billionaire like Mr. Trudeau. Through an intricate web of conspiracy and deceit, his political operatives recruit a young, unsuspecting candidate. They finance him, manipulate him, market him, and mold him into a potential Supreme Court justice. Their Supreme Court justice. The Appeal is a powerful, timely, and shocking story of political and legal intrigue, a story that will leave listeners unable to think about our electoral process or judicial system in quite the same way ever again.
The Achilles Heel of Democracy The Achilles Heel of Democracy Новинка

The Achilles Heel of Democracy

Featuring the first in-depth comparison of the judicial politics of five under-studied Central American countries, The Achilles Heel of Democracy offers a novel typology of 'judicial regime types' based on the political independence and societal autonomy of the judiciary. This book highlights the under-theorized influences on the justice system - criminals, activists, and other societal actors, and the ways that they intersect with more overtly political influences. Grounded in interviews with judges, lawyers, and activists, it presents the 'high politics' of constitutional conflicts in the context of national political conflicts as well as the 'low politics' of crime control and the operations of trial-level courts. The book begins in the violent and often authoritarian 1980s in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua, and spans through the tumultuous 2015 'Guatemalan Spring'; the evolution of Costa Rica's robust liberal judicial regime is traced from the 1950s.
Judicial Review Of Constitutional Amendments in Colombia Judicial Review Of Constitutional Amendments in Colombia Новинка

Judicial Review Of Constitutional Amendments in Colombia

Between 2003 and 2009, the Colombian Constitutional Court attempted to define the contours of the doctrine of ‘constitutional substitution’ and to define the methodology for the Court to apply every time it reviewed a constitutional amendment. However, the Court’s decision C-588 of 2009 diminished the internal coherence of the doctrine, raised the tier of scrutiny of the substitution test and magnified the scope of the Court’s jurisdiction. With this opinion, the Court shed virtually all limitations on reviewing the substantive aspects of a constitutional amendment, and instead revised the challenged reform as if it were an inferior provision, a practice against which the Court itself had warned since 2003. Therefore, under the theory of the “substitution” of the Charter, the Court significantly broadened the scope of its jurisdiction to review constitutional amendments, overruling the traditional reading of article 241 of the Charter. Given the political context at the time, these rulings raised intriguing questions regarding the limits of judicial review of constitutional amendments in Colombia and, consequently, the limits of the secondary constituent in amending the Charter.

Politicization of the International Criminal Court Politicization of the International Criminal Court Новинка

Politicization of the International Criminal Court

The International Criminal Court was one of the greatest achievements in the long and protracted efforts to create an international rule of law and bring to justice the perpetrators of heinous crimes. Through its 10 years of existence however, the ICC has endured accusations of bias and favouritism threatening its credibility as an independent and impartial judicial institution. At the root of these allegations is Article 16 of the Rome Statute that establishes the ICC; this provision allows an unprecedented degree of political interference in the judicial processes of the Court by granting the UN Security Council (a political body) the power to suspend the Court processes 'in the interests of peace'. This books explores the legislative history of Article 16, its application so-far, the allegations of politicization that have arisen there-from and offers practical solutions to the resultant stalemate focussing on the source of the problem itself- the delicate and controversial Article 16. The ICC being the first and only permanent international penal court,is the anchor of international criminal justice- its existence is crucial therefore its image must remain untainted.

Model for Specialized Intellectual Property Court

As ever more concerns of different judicial standards of intellectual property litigations in developing countries are acknowledged cautiously, by most multinational enterprises as well as developing countries themselves. To ensure further international trade and enforce intellectual property rights more efficiently, many developing countries adjust their judicial systems to provide specialized procedures. The range of judicial alterations include providing specialized judges to trial intellectual property right disputes in certain courts, introducing specialized section or division in certain courts, and establishing new specialized intellectual property courts. Nevertheless, judicial changes, especially establishing new specialized court, are costly, both from the infrastructure spending and constantly update training expenses. Moreover, once establishes, no one can undo. This book explores specialized court systems in seven countries, together with historical and philosophical perspectives of intellectual property protection, and proposes a model with major considerations for specialized intellectual property court in developing countries.

The judiciary in Pakistan plays an important role as a guardian of the constitution.The apex cou rts also legalized the four military regimes.

The US Supreme Court and the Modern Common Law Approach The US Supreme Court and the Modern Common Law Approach Новинка

The US Supreme Court and the Modern Common Law Approach

This book studies the US Supreme Court and its current common law approach to judicial decision making from a national and transnational perspective. The Supreme Court's approach appears detached from and inconsistent with the underlying fundamental principles that ought to guide it, which often leads to unfair and inefficient results. This book suggests the adoption of a judicial decision-making model that proceeds from principles and rules, using them as premises for developing consistent unitary theories to meet current social conditions. This model requires that judicial opinions be informed by a wide range of considerations, including established legal standards, the insights derived from deductive and inductive reasoning, the lessons learned from history and custom, and an examination of the social and economic consequences of the decision.
The Public Participation in the Selection of Justice in Indonesia The Public Participation in the Selection of Justice in Indonesia Новинка

The Public Participation in the Selection of Justice in Indonesia

The Judicial Commission is the state institution which was established after the 1998 people’s movement in Indonesia. The purpose of the establishment of this institution is to create a more independent and professional judiciary and judges. The Judicial Commission has primary roles to carry out the selection of Supreme Court Justices and to oversee the judges’ behavior. To optimize these roles, the Judicial Commission established a public participation mechanism, known as the network of the Judicial Commission. These mechanisms give civil society not only the right to give ideas, but it is also officially involved in implementing programs and conducting evaluations. With the public involvement in all stages, it is hoped that on one hand the role of the public will be stronger and be able to participate in supervising the performance of these state institutions. On the other hand the performance of the state institution will be increased and the integrity of the institution will also be maintained.
Ousting the Judiciary from its Interpretive Power in Ethiopia Ousting the Judiciary from its Interpretive Power in Ethiopia Новинка

Ousting the Judiciary from its Interpretive Power in Ethiopia

The Ethiopian judiciary is constitutionally constrained from reviewing the constitutionality of laws of any type. Apart from such limit, the legislature today is busy of making laws that stripped judicial function contrary to the Constitution. Court stripping is also made possible to the executive. The empowerment of the Ethiopian Revenues and Customs Authority by regulation to dismiss its employees for ‘any reason’ yet irreversible by decision of any judicial organ is an apparent prove. The Council of Constitutional Inquiry has confirmed the trend stating ‘the legislature is supreme, vested to decide on issues of justiciability and limit judicial power’. Ironically, the Cassation Bench firmly asserted that there is no inherent power of courts in Ethiopia, rather their power emanates from laws; a decision that makes the legislature an organ that denies or grants judicial power. Apparently, the judiciary is left with no power, except when the legislature wills. The effect is worst that rights entrenched in the Constitution are left with no guarantee of judicial protection. A tension continues between constitutional supremacy and de facto supremacy of the legislature and executive.
The Politics of Heritage in Africa The Politics of Heritage in Africa Новинка

The Politics of Heritage in Africa

Heritage work has had a uniquely wide currency in Africa's politics. Secure within the pages of books, encoded in legal statutes, encased in glass display cases and enacted in the panoply of court ritual, the artefacts produced by the heritage domain have become a resource for government administration, a library for traditionalists and a marketable source of value for cultural entrepreneurs. The Politics of Heritage in Africa draws together disparate fields of study - history, archaeology, linguistics, the performing arts and cinema - to show how the lifeways of the past were made into capital, a store of authentic knowledge that political and cultural entrepreneurs could draw from. This book shows African heritage to be a mode of political organisation, a means by which the relics of the past are shored up, reconstructed and revalued as commodities, as tradition, as morality or as patrimony.

The Politics of Freedom of Expression The Politics of Freedom of Expression Новинка

The Politics of Freedom of Expression

The principle of content-neutrality is the cornerstone of freedom of expression jurisprudence, protecting the core values of freedom of speech set out in the first amendment, whilst also enabling the government to place reasonable restrictions on protected speech. The Politics of Freedom of Expression examines the US Supreme Court's decision-making in freedom of expression cases, from the Earl Warren Court in 1953 to the 2012 decisions of the John Roberts Court, assessing the extent to which the justices take into consideration their own political attitudes, jurisprudence and external factors such as federal government participation. In doing so, the book highlights the role of the civil rights movement in developing the content-neutrality jurisprudential regime. Establishing 'jurisprudential regime theory' as a framework for incorporating the various factors that can affect decision-making, the author draws on quantitative, qualitative and interpretive methods in order to analyse the justices' changing treatment of content-based and content-neutral cases over time. This unique theoretical approach allows the text to push beyond the traditional 'law versus politics' debate in order to critically evaluate the importance of content-neutrality to the Supreme Court's decision-making, and to compare decision-making in the US with Canada, Germany, Japan and the UK.

Contesting Immigration Policy in Court Contesting Immigration Policy in Court Новинка

Contesting Immigration Policy in Court

What difference does law make in immigration policymaking? Since the 1970s, networks of progressive attorneys in both the US and France have attempted to use litigation to assert rights for non-citizens. Yet judicial engagement - while numerically voluminous - remains doctrinally curtailed. This study offers new insights into the constitutive role of law in immigration policymaking by focusing on the legal frames, narratives, and performances forged through action in court. Challenging the conventional wisdom that 'cause litigation' has little long-term impact on policymaking unless it produces broad rights-protective principles, this book shows that legal contestation can have important radiating effects on policy by reshaping how political actors approach immigration issues. Based on extensive fieldwork in the United States and France, this book explores the paths by which litigation has effected policy change in two paradigmatically different national contexts.
Comparative Constitutional Reasoning Comparative Constitutional Reasoning Новинка

Comparative Constitutional Reasoning

To what extent is the language of judicial opinions responsive to the political and social context in which constitutional courts operate? Courts are reason-giving institutions, with argumentation playing a central role in constitutional adjudication. However, a cursory look at just a handful of constitutional systems suggests important differences in the practices of constitutional judges, whether in matters of form, style, or language. Focusing on independently-verified leading cases globally, a combination of qualitative and quantitative analysis offers the most comprehensive and systematic account of constitutional reasoning to date. This analysis is supported by the examination of eighteen legal systems around the world including the European Court of Human Rights and the European Court of Justice. Universally common aspects of constitutional reasoning are identified in this book, and contributors also examine whether common law countries differ to civil law countries in this respect.
Social Rights Judgments and the Politics of Compliance Social Rights Judgments and the Politics of Compliance Новинка

Social Rights Judgments and the Politics of Compliance

The past few decades have witnessed an explosion of judgments on social rights around the world. However, we know little about whether these rulings have been implemented. Social Rights Judgments and the Politics of Compliance is the first book to engage in a comparative study of compliance of social rights judgments as well as their broader effects. Covering fourteen different domestic and international jurisdictions and drawing on multiple disciplines, it finds significant variance in outcomes and reveals both spectacular successes and failures in making social rights a reality on the ground. This variance is strikingly similar to that found in previous studies on civil rights, and the key explanatory factors lie in the political calculus of defendants and the remedial framework. The book also discusses which strategies have enhanced implementation, and focuses on judicial reflexivity, alliance building and social mobilisation.

The Role Of Symbols In Learners’ Understanding Of DC Resistive Circuit

This study investigated the extent to which learners from rural and peri-urban areas understand what the symbols represent and their roles in simple direct current circuits. The emphasis was on simple direct current circuits that consist of batteries and bulbs. The study was carried out with Grade 12 learners at high school level in the Limpopo Provincial Department of Education, in South Africa. It used both qualitative and quantitative data collection methods.It used questionnaires and structured interviews to collect the data so that the results could provide in-depth understanding and generalizability. The results revealed that learners knew the symbols used in DC resistive circuits, however, when the circuit was populated with a number of known symbols it became complex to such an extent that some learners struggled to identify the symbols. As it appeared, learners could not conceptualize the role played by a battery, conductor, ammeter and voltmeter in DC circuit. In addition, the study revealed that learners experience difficulties translating from a real circuit to schematic circuit.

International Criminal Court’s Complementarity Principle International Criminal Court’s Complementarity Principle Новинка

International Criminal Court’s Complementarity Principle

The Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC) does not include issues of peace and national reconciliation. Notwithstanding this, the ICC Prosecutor sits at a critical juncture in the structure of the Court, where the pressures of law and politics converge in initiating proceedings before the Pre-Trial Chamber. Complementarity principle remains a major feature of the ICC as the Court cannot exercise its jurisdiction unless there is a failure by a national judicial system. The national legal systems have to be genuinely unable and unwilling to do so. Therefore, every use of authoritative power has some influence, however slight, on the predispositions and capabilities that are part of the decision process. This book sets out an examination of the complementarity principle. It concludes that a policy-oriented approach to treaty interpretation of the complementarity regime would be ideal to the decision-making process that will achieve goals compatible with values of world public order and human dignity.
Constitutional Courts, Gay Rights and Sexual Orientation Equality Constitutional Courts, Gay Rights and Sexual Orientation Equality Новинка

Constitutional Courts, Gay Rights and Sexual Orientation Equality

In the last fifteen years constitutional issues regarding the rights of gays, lesbians and same-sex couples have emerged on a global scale. The pace of recognition of their fundamental rights, both at judicial and legislative level, has dramatically increased across different jurisdictions, reflecting a growing consensus toward sexual orientation equality. This book considers a wide-range of decisions by constitutional and international courts, from the decriminalization of sexual acts to the recognition of same-sex marriage and parental rights for same-sex couples. It discusses analogies and differences in judicial arguments and rationales in such cases, focusing in particular on human dignity, privacy, liberty, equality and non-discrimination. It argues that courts operate as major exporters of models and principles and that judicial cross-fertilization also helps courts in increasing the acceptability of gays’ and lesbians’ rights in public opinions and politics. Courts discuss changes in the social perception of marriage and family at national and international levels and at the same time confirm and reinforce them, forging the legal debate over sexual orientation equality. Furthermore, by promoting the political reception of the achievements of foreign gay movements in their own jurisdictions, courts play an essential role in breaking the political stalemate.

It is concluded that the Court cannot bring the panacea to Africa''s problems in the areas of peace and justice, for there are lack of effective implementation mechanisms and unfair treatment of nations based on extra-judicial factors. Accordingly, different solutions including establishing an African version of the ICC are recommended; provided that African governments are dedicated enough to make such an institution effective by improving their commitments to protecting rights and by taking adequate lessons from the failures of similar institutions.

The ICJ, Emergence of Regional Courts and Arbitral Tribunals

This book is titled "International Court of Justice, Regional Courts and Arbitral Tribunals". It is written to fill some crucial gaps that exist in the study of international and regional adjudication or dispute settlement procedures. Chapter one discussed the origin of modern international arbitration up till the establishment of the International Court of Justice. Chapters two and three examined the different regional courts and arbitral tribunals in Europe, Africa and the Americas alongside other specialised international and ad hoc tribunals located in these continents. It also compared arbitration and judicial settlement of disputes. Chapter four dealt with the background developments that lead to the proliferation of international courts and arbitral tribunals. Chapter five is the conclusion of the essential issues raised in the initial chapters and went further to make some scintillating recommendations to enhance the performance of the International Court of Justice which is one of the major reasons for the emergence and proliferation of these regional courts and arbitral tribunals in the face of the existing International Court of Justice.

Convent Music and Politics in Eighteenth-Century Vienna

Janet K. Page explores the interaction of music and piety, court and church, as seen through the relationship between the Habsburg court and Vienna's convents. For a period of some twenty-five years, encompassing the end of the reign of Emperor Leopold I and that of his elder son, Joseph I, the court's emphasis on piety and music meshed perfectly with the musical practices of Viennese convents. This mutually beneficial association disintegrated during the eighteenth century, and the changing relationship of court and convents reveals something of the complex connections among the Habsburg court, the Roman Catholic Church, and Viennese society. Identifying and discussing many musical works performed in convents, including oratorios, plays with music, feste teatrali, sepolcri, and other church music, Page reveals a golden age of convent music in Vienna and sheds light on the convents' surprising engagement with contemporary politics.

The Judicial Protection of Human Rights The Judicial Protection of Human Rights Новинка

The Judicial Protection of Human Rights

The recognition of human rights protection by the judiciary is a fundamental concept of human rights protection on the international and national forums. It is generally conceived that the effective functioning of the judiciary lies in its independence. Political interference has been noted as a factor that hampers judicial independence in most jurisdictions around the world. Such is the construction that has befallen judicial independence in Zimbabwe. As a result the judiciary has failed to impartially protect human rights. Therefore, the aim of this research is to proffer recommendations that may improve the judicial protection of human rights in Zimbabwe. To achieve the above aim, the protection of human rights by the judiciary through the use of the Constitution and case law with reference to international law is analysed. The role of the judiciary with regards to the protection of human rights is extensively scrutinised. A comparative study with the judicial protection of human rights in South Africa is undertaken. This is done to investigate any lessons that can be learned or adopted to improve human rights protection in Zimbabwe.

In Ashes Lie (Onyx Court 2)

The year is 1639. The King and Parliament vie for power, fighting one another with politics and armies alike. Below, the faerie court has enemies of its own. The old ways are breaking down, and no one knows what will rise in their place. But now, a greater threat has come, one that could destroy everything. In the house of a sleeping baker, a spark leaps free of the oven -- and ignites a blaze that will burn London to the ground. While the humans struggle to halt the conflagration that is devouring the city street by street, the fae pit themselves against a less tangible foe: the spirit of the fire itself, powerful enough to annihilate everything in its path. Mortal and fae will have to lay aside the differences that divide them, and fight together for the survival of London itself . . .

Ethnic Factor in Ghanaian Politics

Considering the civil and relentless political struggles that have occurred in many sub-Saharan sub-regions, it is no doubt that political uprisings plague the African continent. Surprisingly enough, ethnicity mostly stands out eligible as a cause for such plagues. Having, therefore, conducted a study on ethnicity in politics (i.e. ethno-politics), this book examines the concepts, ‘Ethnicity’, and ‘Ethno-politics’, and their effects on politics (especially elections) in the Asawase Constituency (an electoral region in Ghana). It again discusses some factors that influence the voting patterns of electorates in the constituency, and finally concludes with some remedies to extinguish the adverse effects Ethno-politics has on the constituency, the country (Ghana) and the entire African continent.
