To mark the 30th anniversary of the enactment of Sierra Leone’s 1991 Constitution, the Institute for Legal Research and Advocacy for Justice (ILRAJ) is on the verge of releasing a publication of a collection of essays.
This medium reliably learned that the collection is seeking to reflect on Sierra Leone’s constitutional dilemma and as well proffers some solutions.
Further informed was that the volume is divided into three parts with the first part being introductory and setting the tone for the discussion. In addition, the second part relates to issues of democracy and human rights as the third part addresses critical human rights issues.
