Abstract:Most states rely on ideology as well as law to develop and maintain their socio-economic systems. Ideologies operate at the level of ideas and attempt to influence the consciousness of the people and in that way ultimately to affect behaviour. Law is intended to operate more concretely and to determine the behaviour of the people. Especially in countries like Tanzania, where pervasive tasks are assigned to ideology, it is important to examine the relationship between law and ideology. The study begins with a discussion of the terms and indicates the senses in which they are employed in it. Sections: Law and ideology - Ideology in Tanzania - Law - Relationship between law and ideology (Introduction; Law and ideology in conflict; Law and ideology in harmony; Law and ideology as alternative methods; Conclusion). Notes.
