Issues of Constitutionalism, explores what has become one of the most
controversial issues on the continent. In the last few decades, constitution
making, and issues of constitutionalism without any doubt, have gained
considerable prominence. Much as it is argued that constitutionalism promotes
the rule of law, it is also argued that many African leaders do not believe in
constitutional rule or those provisions that limit their powers. It is
further, argued that not every state that has a constitution (in that sense)
is a constitutional state. Some constitutional law scholars are of the opinion
that some are sham constitutions, in that they exist for ‘cosmetic’ purposes
only and have no effect in reality. The debate in the context of philosophy of
law on the constitution as written document or unwritten principles in light
of democracy, the rule of law and constitutionalism is ongoing. The study
critically analyses the doctrine of constitutionalism in light of majoritarian
democracies in Africa focusing on Uganda as the case study and explores the
question whether having a written constitution is condition enough to satisfy
that any given state is indeed a constitutional state. The work in this book
has looked at different theories in constitutionalism in order to encourage
critical thinking on issues of a constitutional democracy, the rule of law,
and human rights in general.
