Database on constitutions of Sub-Saharan Africa goes online

Dear colleagues,

The /Database of the Constitutions of Sub-Saharan Africa/ offering constitutional documents for 52 Sub-Saharan countries since their independence is now available online.

The collection contains constitutions, as well as amendments and constitutional bills. The documents are provided in their original language, and, if available, in their English translation. The /Database of the Constitutions of Sub-Saharan Africa/ was set up with support of the German Foundation for Peace Research (Deutsche Stiftung Friedensforschung) for the research project "Traditional Institutions in sub-Saharan Africa: Endangering or Promoting Stable Domestic Peace?" at the University of Konstanz.

We provide a collection of web links to online resources and publicly available PDF-files for individual use. At present, several constitutional documents are still missing from the database, but we continue working to complete the constitutional chronology for all countries. We therefore encourage you to share any online resources or documents so far missing from the database.

Please go to http://www.polver.uni-konstanz.de/holzinger/forschung/drittmittelprojekte/t raditional-institutions-in-sub-saharan-africa/datenbank/ to access the database.

Best regards,
Daniela Kromrey
