As Africa moves towards enhanced economic integration, this will have implications to frameworks for the promotion of constitutionalism, democracy and good governance. Civil society organisations that have been at the forefront of the promotion of democracy and constitutionalism will therefore have to think through ways of integrating issues of continental trade with these values. In addition to exploring the interaction between economic integration and constitutional values, this paper will consider whether and how civil society contributed to the emergence of multilateralism in Africa and the extent to which they can contribute to its sustenance.
