Legal academic John Dugard describes the work he undertook in defence of human rights in apartheid South Africa, South West Africa/ Namibia and Palestine.

"John Dugard's vivid historical and comparative study of injustice in three societies not only shows how law has been and is being used as an instrument of racial injustice, but reminds us powerfully of the need to confront racial oppression wherever it occurs." Edwin Cameron, Justice of the Constitutional Court

"...serves to remind us of the depths to which humankind may sink in its determination to secure the supposed superiority of one racial group over another." Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu

John Dugard founded the Centre for Applied Legal Studies at Wits University. After the fall of apartheid he worked as Director of the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law at Cambridge, was Professor of International Law at Leiden University and judge ad hoc of the International Court of Justice in The Hague.
