Book description

An interdisciplinary perspective is adopted to examine international and European models of constitutionalism. In particular the book reflects critically on a number of constitutional themes, such as the nature of European and international constitutional models and their underlying principles; the telos behind international and European constitutionalism; the role of the state and of central courts; and the relationships between composite orders. Transnational Constitutionalism brings together a group of European and international law scholars, whose thought-provoking contributions provide the necessary intellectual insight that will assist the reader in understanding the political and legal phenomena that take place beyond the state. This edited collection represents an original and pioneering contribution to the international and European constitutional discourse.


Review of the hardback:'The book attempts to not restrain itself to a narrow perspective; it encloses legal and socio-political accounts, scholars from the European as well as the international level, promoters and sceptics and voices from different theoretical backgrounds such as Kelsenian, system theories and Habermas. … This book … shows that it is important to deviate from the standard perception of a constitution as a single mono-level document in favour of constituting elements assembled from national, regional and international documents. Definitely it is a book that has the potential to kindle further discussion and give an overview of what has been reached so far.'
