Letter from the Editor

In this issue, the International Journal of Not-for-Profit Law features country reports from sub-Saharan Africa. We are proud to publish reports on Ethiopia, by Debebe Hailegebriel; Kenya, by Faith Kisinga Gitonga; Liberia, by Cecil B. Griffiths; Rwanda, by Gloria Tengera; Sierra Leone, by Emmanuel Saffa Abdulai; South Africa, by Ricardo G. Wyngaard; Uganda, by Livingstone Sewanyana; and Zimbabwe, by Otto Saki. The reports are especially timely, as African countries deal in different ways with regulatory challenges affecting civil society.
 
In addition, Peter S.A. Hendricks and Ricardo G. Wyngaard analyze the King Report on Governance for South Africa, which seeks to apply commercial standards to the governance of civil society organizations.

We thank USAID for its generous support to the International Center for Not-for-Profit Law, which made possible the country reports on Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, and Zimbabwe; and the World Movement for Democracy for allowing us to reprint the reports on Ethiopia, Liberia, Rwanda, and Sierra Leone, which were made possible through the Defending Civil Society project, funded by Canada’s Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade. We also thank our authors for their valuable country reports and incisive articles.
