  • Visions of constitutionalism: Theory

    Revusov forum
    Edited by Donald Bello and Ana Cannilla

    Constitutional scholars are concerned with the pressing issues that liberal democracies face today and thus strive to rethink and improve the theory and practice of constitutionalism accordingly. By bringing together leading experts in constitutional and political theory to discuss relevant issues of constitutional government and democratic theory, this symposium on Visions of Constitutionalism responds to that concern. 

    Readers of Revus will enjoy a wide range of novel approaches to constitutionalism. Bringing fresh ideas to the fore, rethinking core debates and developing key ideas in constitutional theory and practice, the symposium unfolds in two issues of Revus. In this issue our contributors originally point out challenges and shortcomings of contemporary constitutional theory, dealing with them in ways that develop fruitful new philosophical lines of constitutional thought. In the next issue, our authors pose urgent questions of institutional design and shed light on how to make different views of constitutionalism work, ranging from theoretical proposals on how to institutionalize different forms of constitutionalism to relevant analysis on the institutional instantiations of constitutional theories presenting themselves as alternatives to more traditional approaches which underscore the role of constitutions as curbs on majoritarian political power.

     We hope the symposium will help readers assess whether or to what extent our received views of constitutionalism and institutional design are fit for the purpose of tackling current political challenges to liberal democracies. Examining sundry relevant problems of constitutional theory and practice, our contributors present an ample breadth of perspectives that will add to the existing literature on constitutionalism and contribute to pushing the field of constitutional thought forward in relevant and original ways.
