Caiphas Brews Soyapi

I am a researcher based at the North-West University (NWU), South Africa (SA). My experience involves teaching, postgraduate supervision, and a brief stint in legal practice.

Within this space, I broadly explore rights-based environmental protection, the place of international environmental law principles in African courts, and African judicial environmentalism. You can find my research here.
