Constitutionalism and the Megacity

Author Ran Hirschl

Oxford Comparative Constitutionalism

  • Addresses a major scholarly gap - the great constitutional silence concerning urban agglomeration and the rise of megacities.
  • Provides a detailed, first-of-its-kind, comparative analysis of the constitutional status of cities across time and place.
  • Probes the origins and consequences of the constitutional (dis)empowerment of the metropolis.
  • Advances novel arguments for granting the metropolis adequate constitutional standing while mitigating the urban/rural divide.
