This chapter, which focuses on the first post-colonial constitutions created at the time of African independence, addresses four questions. How were these constitutions made? Did they build a social contract between states and citizens? Is there a clear typology of constitutions in Africa corresponding to the political differences between the colonial powers? What was the long-term effect of these first post-colonial constitutions?
