State, Economy & Society: Reflections on Constitutions in Africa By Professor Yash Pal Ghai, Nov. 5 2015 @ BIEA

State of the Economy
Date: 5 November 2015
Venue: BIEA Seminar room, Laikipia road, Kileleshwa
Time: 6:00pm-8:00pm

Since the beginning of colonialism in the early 19th century, African states have experienced a large number of constitutions, in both the colonial and post-independence periods. Each constitution has expressed the exigencies and expectations of the moment; some have been imposed, others the decisions of the people. If we regard the primary purpose of a constitution to promote constitutionalism, most constitutions have been failures.

Tanzania at the Crossroads – Assessing the Oct. 25 General Elections, Nov. 3 2015 @ IFRA

with Cyrielle Maingraud-Martinaud & Murithi Mutiga

Date and Time: Tuesday November 3, 2015 at 4pm
Venue: IFRA

About
On 25 October, Tanzanian held its 5th general elections since the reintroduction of multipartism. If final results are not yet known at this time, it is clear that their outcome will be of tremendous importance for the future of the United Republic, which is considered to be one of the most stable countries of the region.

Several factors have made these elections the most competitive since 1992: the alliance of main opposition parties under the banner of Ukawa, the defection of former Prime Minister Edward Lowassa, the divisions among the ruling party CCM and the habituation to democracy of Tanzanian citizens.The demand for change, especially from urban and young voters, has constituted a serious challenge to the ruling party and has already lead to the defeat of high profile CCM parliamentary candidates ; on the other side, CCM has been able, with the reputation of its candidate John Magufuli, to campaign on a strong anti-corruption agenda, undermining a traditional advantage for the opposition.

This seminar will investigate the implication of the proceeding of these elections on Tanzanian political dynamics as well as for East Africa.
