Abstract

Against the background of the ongoing constitutional reform process in Tanzania, this volume on “Constitutional Reform Processes and Integration in East Africa” provides a critical discussion of the subject in the light of continuing regional integration within the East African Community (EAC). Tanzania has the opportunity to learn from previous experience in the other Partner States of the EAC, where new constitutions were enacted in 1995 (Uganda), 2003 (Rwanda), 2005 (Burundi) and 2010 (Kenya). Comparative discussions of these reforms and the current Tanzanian reform process were held at two joint conferences of the Tanzanian-German Centre for Eastern African Legal Studies (TGCL) and the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) in Dar es Salaam in May 2012 and in May 2013. Selected conference papers and additional contributions to this volume analyse weaknesses in the current Tanzanian Constitution and make suggestions for improvement. Corruption and poor public service responsibility are looked at as possible consequences of open-ended features in constitutionalism and cultural attitudes. ‘Best practices’ for a modern judiciary and the role of the National Electoral Commission in supporting constitutional democracy are also discussed. Further topics include the constitutionalisation of citizenship law and of
environmental law. The volume ends with the executive summary of the reform proposals submitted in April 2013 by the University of Dar es Salaam School of Law to the Constitutional Review Commission of Tanzania.
