This volume is the first publication by the Tanzanian-German Centre for Postgraduate Studies in Law (TGCL). The present volume is mainly the result of two academic events, both held in the Nkrumah Hall of the University of Dar es Salaam in 2008, namely the inauguration of the Tanzanian-German Centre for Postgraduate Studies in Law on 4 September, and the conference in commemoration of the 60th anni­versary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, held under the title "Justice and Dignity for All" on 25 November. The academic papers presented at these two events are reproduced in this volume, addressing the manifold current challenges to human rights in Tanzania which concern in particular some of the marginalised and less privileged sections of society. These include albinos and others who have become victims of mob violence and witchcraft killings. The articles are supplemented by an additional contribution providing a historical account of human rights from a European perspective.
