Abstract in another language

This volume on “Processes of Legal Integration in the East African Community” takes up legal questions arising at various stages of the development and growth of the East African Community (EAC). Only ten years after the coming into force of the EAC Treaty in 2000, the East African Common Market was established in 2010. The potential of the EAC Treaty to develop into a constitution for East Africa, and the role of the East African Court of Justice in the process of legal integration are topics discussed in this volume. The legal historical background of the EAC from the inception of colonial rule is traced, and the right of access to land is examined. Moreover, an analysis of “multiple sources of law” refers to the claim that in every African state there are a number of bodies of law which differ from each other, not only in content, but also in the sources of their claims to authority. These topics are relevant within the work of the Tanzanian-German Centre for Postgraduate Studies in Law (TGCL) with its regional orientation in constitutional law, human rights law and comparative law towards the EAC and its partner states.
