L’Afrique des après-conférences nationales

Abstract : The National Conferences are a moment of the political history of many African countries. They have been the subject of both favourable and unfavourable assessments. They demonstrate a new way of doing politics and of retaining power. Whatever one’s reservations about them, they mark a new step in political liberalisation and in the development of an effective democratic constitutional order. However, in view of the various current uses of constitutionalism, doubts are raised regarding the effectiveness of the changes and about the nature of the impetus that the conferences created or were supposed to have created. However, new approaches are indeed being developed, new institutional structures are being built and new paradigms conceived. They can be seen as a guarantee of the greater effectiveness of a democratic constitutionalism, which is in the process of being decolonised.
