Learning and Legitimacy

Oxford Constitutional Theory

  • Compares and contrasts the new "post sovereign" paradigm of constitution making with the main democratic alternatives: the French sovereign model and the American antinomic model
  • Explores the relevance of the new principles of legitimacy in the historical Central European and South African settings that established their possibility and in recent constitutional reforms in Turkey and Hungary, as well as the alternative populist paradigm
