Pluralismo e integrazione regionale in Africa sub-sahariana: il ruolo controverso dei formanti sovranazionali

Pluralism and regional integration in sub-saharan africa: the controversial role of supranational formants

  • Veronica Federico

Abstract

African legal systems are characterized by the concomitance of a number of elements (the legal system’s complexity and stratification, the weakness of the State, the fragility of Parliaments, and the phenomenon of constitutions without
constitutionalism) that define the particular ecosystem in which to develop the reasoning on the relevance of regional organizations’ formants for supranational integration processes. It will be argued that regional economic organizations’ formants do not add an additional rigid layer on the already highly stratified African legal systems, but rather, they are born "liquid" from origin, and this seems to be strategic to lead the countries, albeit at a slow pace and with effects that are not always univocal, in a tortuous and uneven path towards African forms of integration.
