The Protection of Traditional Cultural Expressions in Africa

Date Released: Fri, 1 September 2017 15:10 +0200

Professor Enyinna Nwauche’s highly anticipated book on traditional cultural expression in Africa has been published. The book titled ‘The protection of traditional cultural expression in Africa’ uses Kenya, Nigeria and Ghana as case study examples to evaluate the protection of cultural expression in the context of a combination of positive protection models such as intellectual property rights and negative protection such as tangible heritage protection and authorisations by national competent authorities. The book also considers the assessment of these models in the light of human rights frameworks which recognise and affirm group entitlements to cultural expression.
