Cancelled – Challenges of Constitution-Making in Sudan

12.11.2021 15:30 - English


This event is cancelled

The search for a permanent constitution has haunted Sudan throughout its post-independence in 1956. For the third time in its history, a military dictator has been ousted by the people. Sudan now has the opportunity to set the terms for a transition to constitutional democracy. What challenges does the transitional government face in its search for a permanent constitution? What are the prospects of a participatory and inclusive process? And what can Sudan learn from theories of constitution-making and experiences from other countries around the globe?
