Research and Publications

Why?

We believe that proper implementation of the Constitution would benefit greatly from well researched work that includes detailed explanation of the various concepts and provisions and a comparison with other jurisdictions as to how they are implemented. However, that research must also look at the local context within which these provisions apply.

Why Research ?

A great deal of our own internal work requires research. It feeds into our preparation for our litigation and we pride ourselves on its quality. Research is also essential to our publications, including books, manuals on key Constitutional issues, occasional papers, journal articles, newspaper articles, advisory opinions to government and non-governmental institutions, development of model legislation and critique of proposed and existing legislation and designing of training programmes for the judiciary, developing civic education materials.

We note that there still is a significant need to carry out more constitutional research. At present, there are very few institutions, including institutions of higher learning, that are engaging in the thorough constitutional research that is necessary to help explain the meaning, context and implications of various constitutional provisions. 

Therefore KI sees as part of its mandate to include undertaking research on topical and complex constitutional issues which is needed to assist in policy development, seminal litigation and guiding precedent setting judgments and informing civil society work on constitutional matters.
