Effective university teaching and learning is an intellectually demanding task (Brown & Atkins 1988; Freire 2006; Escobar, Fernandez & Guevara-Niebla 1994 Susan & Wijeyesinghe 2011). The lecturer is not only expected to be versed with the course, but also to develop teaching strategies based on the contexts of education (Brown & Atkins 1988: 1-2). Knowledge, to believe the words of McLaren, has no intrinsic value per se but depends on the context in which it is produced as well as its purpose (Escobar, M., Fernandez & Guevara-Niebla, 1994). This leads me to quote Meirieu’s book (2010), titled “Apprendre … oui, mais comment?” “To learn … yes, but how?”

One of the major difficulties in higher education (HE) occurs when students leave the university with a very low growth of skills. The motivation for this research is the lack of quality education characterized not only by the insufficiency of its content, but also by a teaching method that is mostly magisterial.

Students are neither expected to actively participate in class nor to work independently. The development of critical thinking, intrinsic motivation and self-responsibility are hardly encouraged and sometimes are destroyed. The improvement of education is of a major and important concern. Thus, this study is a contribution to the ongoing debate on quality university education and a study on the awareness and perception of LCE in the teaching-learning process in Higher Learning Institutions.

Didas Muganga Kayihura ~ Corporate Governance And The Liability Of Corporate Directors: The Case Of Rwanda


280 pag.
16,5 x 24 cm
ISBN 978 90 3610 481 4
Euro 34,50

This study tries to investigate from the Rwandan perspective, whether there are any circumstances that would lead to personal or joint liability of a director when performing his/her duties as a company director. It also investigates when and when not Rwandan Corporate directors would benefit from the insulation of the corporate veil. The study also tries to look at what the legal (express and implied) duties of company directors are and what the legal consequences would be in case of breach or ultra vires these duties.

The findings of this study indicate however that, the knowledge and awareness of directors’ duties and obligations have always been presumed based on what exists in law, but that it does not necessarily and actually tally with what is known and practiced.
For company directors, the findings of this study offers a basis upon which they can best evaluate their role in the running of their respective company’s business and social life. It as well puts together all the express and implied duties and the possible liabilities thereof under Rwandan law, in case of breach or ultra vires these duties. The provisions from different scattered Rwandan laws relevant to directors’ duties as well as inspirations from other developed systems have informed this study’s findings, aiming at ensuring for a better performance of Rwandan Corporate sector.

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


safariThe Rwandan Commercial Law Books Series 5
96 pag.
Euro 17,90
ISBN 978 90 361 0446 3
Price: €17,90

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.
