CMJA Conference Dar-Es-Salaam
24th - 28th September 2017
“Building an effective, accountable and inclusive judiciary”
Over the last century, Dar-es-Salaam has transformed from a small Zaramo fishing village in the 19th century along a natural harbour of the Indian Ocean into a thriving is a multicultural city. It is the largest city in Tanzania and the largest city in eastern Africa by population, as well as a regionally important economic centre. The town blends African, Indian and Arab influences to create a unique culture. From its Arabic name (Dar-es-Salaam means “haven of peace”), the city later became the capital of the nascent country of Tanganyika (now Tanzania). Following Tanzanian independence in 1961, the country’s capital eventually moved inland to Dodoma, but Dar- es-Salaam still remains Tanzania’s largest city, and it’s most prominent commercial and cultural hub.
