Work Programme

Together with local, regional and global partners, the Constitution Building programme raises awareness of the role constitution-building processes play in managing conflict and consolidating democracy.

The work involves:

  • Providing technical assistance to national actors engaged in processes of constitution building;
  • Providing knowledge and capacity-building resources that individuals and groups can use to strengthen their participation, and its quality, in processes of constitution building;
  • Facilitating access to lesson learning in comparative contexts so that national, regional and international actors have more options to consider in dealing with different constitutional issues;
  • Servicing a global community of constitution building practitioners through physical and virtual spaces for dialogue.
