Highlights from the Constitution-Building Conference now LIVE on YOUTUBE

On September 6, 2013 the University of the Western Cape's Community Law Centre hosted a conference on constitution-building in Cape Town. This conference was hosted in partnership with the Centre for Human Rights, the South African Research Chair in Multilevel Government Law and Policy. This conference was funded by the Ford Foundation.

The conference which was held at the University of the Western Cape in Cape Town attracted over 350 delegates from across Africa and it also coincided with the annual All African Human Rights Moot Court.

The Key message from the conference was that the constitution is not the answer for all societal ills, it doesn’t solve inequality. It does, however, provide values and direction in terms of which government and society must work to address these inequalities.
