FOREWORD

IN THIS ISSUE “The UN Constitutional” team is pleased to publish the seventh issue of its newsletter featuring articles by constitutional experts, reports from the field, and a digest of recent constitutions-related publications. In this issue, we have interviewed Yash Ghai on his experience as constitutional advisor and drafter, particularly in Kenya and Fiji. The issue also features a brief introduction to federalism and a short case study on women’s national machineries; in addition to updates on UN support to constitutional processes in six countries. “The UN Constitutional” is a manifestation of the collective desire of 6 UN entities to raise awareness around the UN of constitutional issues and themes, share information, and strengthen the provision of constitutional assistance.
