Abstract:Each of Africa's countries has a different constitutional design, is characterized by a unique culture and history, and faces different stresses that threaten to undermine political stability. Presenting the first database of constitutional design in all African countries, along with seven original case studies (Burundi, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, Sudan, and Zimbabwe), this collective volume on constitutions and conflict management in Africa explores the types of domestic political institutions that can buffer societies from destabilizing changes that otherwise increase the risk of violence.
