Constitutional Design and Conflict Management (CDCM) in Africa

A Project of the Climate Change and African Political Stability Program, Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law

The CCAPS program spearheads an investigation by seven of the world?s leading scholars of Constitutional Design and Conflict Management (CDCM) in Africa. Each scholar examines a different African country to determine how past climate-related and other shocks have been mediated by constitutional design. Countries under study include Burundi, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, Sudan, and Zimbabwe, offering lessons for the entire continent. The project aims to pinpoint African countries that are especially vulnerable to political instability and to identify the political institutions that the U.S. government should promote through its democracy and governance aid programs to minimize the security consequences and human suffering that could result from climate change in Africa.
