Scientific background: CDP and CERDRADI held on 16 and 17 June 2010 a symposium on "Africa and the internationalization of constitutionalism: actress or spectator."

The papers and discussions that followed showed the limits in terms of effectiveness of constitutionalism inspired deemed essentially Western.
