Welcome to the Centre for Legal Integration in Africa (CLIA) 

Our newly launched Centre conducts pioneering research on the dialogue between state laws and indigenous African laws. Policy-makers everywhere will do well to focus on this dialogue, which offers a platform for the integration of legal orders in sub-Saharan Africa.

Our web channel highlights our engagement with the challenges and opportunities related to this, and provides visitors with news, blogs, listings of our publications, and external resources.
