The main objectives of this conference are:
To create the forum that will enable the participants to compare notes based on their practical experiences and finally generate a reliable platform for cooperation and collaboration in order to ensure a better dispensation of constitutional justice at all levels of African states;
To enable practitioners of constitutional justice to identify the various bottlenecks that impair their performance;
To enable the various heads of institutions charged with the responsibilities of dispensing constitutional justice, as well as theorists and even general practitioners of law, to objectively assess and evaluate the progress made by States and to identify ways of thinking which are likely to enhance a culture of the rule of law and a better articulation of political and democratic game within the African states through constitutional justice; and
To provide an authentic African reflection of constitutional justice, its complexities and aspirations, both in the context of building a legal culture that complies with the democratic aspirations of African people and countries as well as in the prospect of a better rooting of values that promotes the democratic ideal.
