Constitutional Engineering and the Transition to Democracy in Post-Cold War Africa
By John Mukum Mbaku
This article appeared in the Spring 1998 issue of The Independent Review


Although free of the burden of playing chessboard to Cold War partisans, most African nations have yet to establish a solid framework for political representation and economic prosperity. Until they create efficient, self-enforcing constitutions, they will continue to suffer from the opportunism of their leaders rather than enjoy the blessings of liberty.
