Journalist en cultureel ondernemer Frank Siddiqui kreeg in de zomer van 2015 een doodsbericht: wat een onschuldige slijmbeurs ontsteking leek, bleek het resultaat van een verwoestend kankerproces. Tot zijn eigen verbazing raakte hij niet in paniek. Hij wist wat hem te doen stond. Hij wilde het nooit vertelde verhaal over zijn jeugd op papier krijgen en zijn verhouding met de wereld, zijn opvattingen over journalistiek, diversiteit, kunst en boedhisme verduidelijken voor zijn jonge neven, vrienden en iedereen die het lezen wilde. With a little help of some friends is daardoor dit boek ontstaan. Een boek met verhalen, gesprekken, foto’s en een mooie liefdesgeschiedenis.
Een boek dat in verrassende vormen laat zien wat telt in een mensenleven.

Dr. François-Xavier Kalinda ~ Labour Law and Labour Relations in Rwanda

The Rwandan Commercial Law Books Series 6

Euro 18,90
ISBN 978 90 361 0445 6

Labour law has become a complex branch of the law constituted of a body of rules which governs the relationship between employers and employees. The main characteristic of the employer-employee relationship is the position of subordination in which the employee is placed. The position of subordination exists when an employee works under the command, authority and control of an employer.
The objective of labour law is, therefore, to establish an appropriate balance in interests, rights and obligations between the employer and the employee.
This book explains how the relationship between employers and employees operate both at individual and collective level. It provides the institutional, legal and regulatory framework for labour relations in Rwanda, and the case law illustrating the law in action.
The book comprises of two parts. The first part deals with individual employment relations concerning the rights and duties of the parties, working conditions and settlement of individual disputes. The second part examines collective employment relations which include subjects such as trade unions and employers’ associations, collective bargaining and industrial conflicts.
Adopting an academic approach, this book is suitable for law students, law practitioners and others who need a working knowledge of the law.

Dr. François-Xavier Kalinda is a senior lecturer at the University of Rwanda, School of Law. He teaches Labour law and Social Security, Intellectual Property
Law and Advanced Research Methodology.

Faustin Ntezilyayo & M.A Kizito Safari ~ Commercial Dispute Resolution

The Rwandan Commercial Law Books Series 5
96 pag.
Euro 17,90
ISBN 978 90 361 0446 3

It is well known that economic development involves a substantial increase on the number and complexity of business transactions along with increasing specialization and division of labour into production and service delivery, as well as increased international trade and investment. It is also recognized that the legal framework governing business transactions is central to the development of the private sector.
In order to promote investment confidence, an enabling legal environment through an effective and efficient system of commercial dispute resolution is a necessity. In Rwanda, commercial disputes can be resolved through commercial courts or using arbitration and other alternative dispute resolution mechanisms.
This book is devoted to these two modes of settling commercial disputes.

Dr. Fidèle Masengo, Didas Muganga Kayihura & Elvis M. Binda ~ Rwanda Company Law 2009

The Rwandan Commercial Law Books Series 3
130 pag.
Euro 19,50
ISBN 978 90 361 0444 9

This piece of work authored by Fidèle Masengo, Didas Muganga Kayihura and Elvis M. Mbembe through the support from the Institute of Law Practice and Development (ILPD) intends to digest and make the Company Law 2009 as well as its subsequent 2010 amendment more comprehensible and understandable to their end users especially from academia, Legal practitioners and the judiciary. This work becomes more relevant and inevitable especially that, having been highly influenced by the common law, the Company Law 2009 turns us to a different mindset altogether from its civilist predecessor (the 1988 Law on Commercial Enterprises) that governed companies and other business associations.
It brings to book some new concepts and terms to the Rwandan Legal system that, where not elaborated, explained and contextualized, would lead to confusion of Law students and/or practitioners reading and applying this law, but from its predecessor’s (1988 law) background.

Rwandan legal system that used to be purely civil with a remarkable influence from the Belgian and French legal systems has, since the 2004 judicial reforms, embraced a somewhat mixed legal system that incorporates both civil and common law best practices. Rwandan new Commercial laws including the company law thus, have today not only responded to this trend but have as well considered the globalization and its impact in the global trade and practice. This piece of work interprets company law provisions from the Rwandan law perspective but with consideration to what takes place elsewhere in the world.
