A Warrior for Justice: Essays in Honour of Dikgang Moseneke is a culmination of a series of events to honour former Deputy Chief Justice, Dikgang Moseneke. A well-attended symposium was held at the University of Cape Town on 7 December 2016, with thoughtful presentations and engaged dialogue in honour of a great jurisprudential mind and judicial leader. The papers presented at the symposium appear in this volume, while additional papers were included to add to the richness of the tribute which we pay to Justice Moseneke upon his retirement from the Bench.
The articles in A Warrior for Justice are arranged into three main thematic sections: judicial engagement and the separation of powers; transformation, equality and indigeneity; and economic justice. In addition, there are personal reflections from colleagues, friends and a former Constitutional Court clerk. These reflections remind us of the human being behind the distinguished legal mind of Justice Moseneke.
