Abstract

L'article examine la jurisprudence de la Cour suprême mauricienne et souligne l’important rôle joué par la Cour suprême de Maurice dans la consolidation de la démocratie et la défense de la Constitution à Maurice comme le recommande la Charte africaine de la démocratie, des élections et de la gouvernance (CADEG). Le but de l’article est de mettre en lumière un ensemble de bonnes pratiques et de leçons qui peuvent être suivies par les organes judiciaires d’autres Etats africains. L’article plaide aussi pour la ratification et la domestication de la CADEG à l’Ile Maurice en dépit de son classement parmi les pays les plus démocratiques du continent.
