Bereket Habte Selassie is a leading scholar on African law and government. His work in Eritrea has been well-chronicled through a number of books he has authored, including "The Making of the Eritrean Constitution: The Dialectic of Process and Substance" (2003), "The Crown and The Pen: The Memoirs of a Lawyer Turned Rebel" (2007), and "Wounded Nation: How a Once Promising Eritrea Was Betrayed and Its Future Compromised" (2010).

For the first time in their history, Eritreans were engaged in the making of a document by which they would be governed. Seen as the culmination of their struggle for self-determination, the Constitution was written over a three-year period, informed by intensive public debate held in villages and towns throughout the newly liberated country. Written by a scholar who led the process of constitution drafting, this book analyses the process from beginning to end, arguing that the value of a constitution lies in the degree of pubic participation that goes into its making.

Can constitutions of divided or plural societies be engineered to help bring about intercommunal accommodation and strength-ened democracy?, How do political institutions affect the trajectory of democratiza-tion in divided societies? The challenge of further expanding democracy in the contemporary world rests signicantly on divided societies.
