This course will explore constitutionalism in sub-Saharan Africa, with the following questions in mind: Is African constitutionalism distinct from Western constitutionalism? What influence has International Human Rights and the post-colonial experience had on African constitutionalism? What influence has the African Human Rights regime had on the interpretation of domestic African constitutions? We will look specifically at how particular substantive issues such as the rights to equality, culture, religion, socio-economic rights, land disputes, HIV/Aids and crime are construed in African Commission Reports and domestic African constitutional jurisprudence, in order to get a greater sense of the social, economic and political implications of constitutionalism in sub-Saharan Africa.
