Constitutions and Conflict Management in Africa, edited by LBJ School Professor Alan J. Kuperman

Based on careful case studies and new data, this excellent volume reflects an important new set of ideas relating to constitutional design and conflict. — Terrence Lyons, George Mason University

Presenting the first database of constitutional design in all African countries, and seven original case studies, Constitutions and Conflict Management in Africa explores the types of domestic political institutions that can buffer societies from destabilizing changes that otherwise increase the risk of violence.
