Pilgrims constitute men, groups, and organizations that use the constitutional right of a particular activity to export beyond their borders. Constitutional hybridizations are often the result of the will of elites.

There is a set of transactions between "elites" (broadly defined) who are constantly exported and imported. In fact, one is witnessing the creation of genuine informal networks composed of experts of all kinds, lawyers, NGOs, or "policy-makers."

The elites are no longer the only providers of constitutions and numerous "public interest" groups have worked internationally. It emerged as a "high international sphere" that forms a true epistemic community capable of irrigating the entire planet with a legal, conceptual and practical boundary for systems. Finally, Africa is primarily a practical aspect as it highlights these institutional practices (like the time in Eastern Europe).

Conversely, this study did not reach the mainland and illustrated it through specific case studies rather than general ones. It will try to understand whether the figure of the constitutional pilgrim carries a singular term or if it fits in a more general phenomenon of the institutions.

A primary objective will be to observe the elements inherent in the mechanisms of institutional transplantation, where the logic of mimesis is central, in which the "pilgrim" plays a role whether acting individually or as that its action is multi-centered.

The institutional mimicry is a phenomenon that was devoted in some countries, institutional and constitutional codes which one will see that they are the result of a copy or a strong influence of other constitutional systems.
