October 11, 2016

Publications celebrated at the High Tea.

The College of Law and Management Studies recently hosted a Book and Book Chapters High Tea Celebration.

The aim of the event was to celebrate all books (accredited or non-accredited) including textbooks and book chapters authored by staff members in the College from 2014 to 2016. This included seven books and over 30 book chapters on a variety of topics including law, good governance, information technology and research methodology to name a few.

College Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Head Professor John Mubangizi who contributed a chapter titled: “The Ombudsman: Promoting Accountability and Good Governance” published in the book titled: African Accountability: What Works and What Doesn’t which focuses on political and social aspects to assess the current state of governance and accountability and features a foreword written by Public Protector Advocate Thuli Madonsela said that it important for academics to expand their research profile.

‘For this book, I was asked to write a chapter about the role of Congolese men in accountability in Africa and I accepted because it is important for one to diversify their research by going beyond journal articles,’ he said.

College Dean of research Professor Marita Carnelley authored a chapter titled “Maintenance Offences” in the book titled: SA Criminal Law and Procedure Volume III: Statutory Offences. She encouraged academics to not only look at publishing as a way of generating productivity units but a vital tool of ensuring that the knowledge of their disciplines is continuously up to date and available to the stakeholders.
