Handbook on Global Constitutionalism

Research Handbooks on Globalisation and the Law series

Edited by Anthony F. Lang, Jr., Chair in International Political Theory, School of International Relations, University of St Andrews, UK and Antje Wiener, Chair of Political Science, especially Global Governance, Faculty of Business and Social Sciences, University of Hamburg, Germany and By-Fellow at Hughes Hall, University of Cambridge, UK

This Handbook introduces scholars and students to the history, philosophy, and evidence of global constitutionalism. Contributors provide their insights from law, politics, international relations, philosophy, and history, drawing on diverse frameworks and empirical data sets. Across them all, however, is a recognition that the international order cannot be understood without an understanding of constitutional theory. The Handbook will define this field of inquiry for the next generation by bringing together some of the leading contemporary scholars.

‘The Handbook on Global Constitutionalism is a penetrating, rich and thought-provoking volume. Drawing leading scholars of international law, international relations and political theory into constructive dialogue, it is an important contribution to debates over the past, present and future of global constitutionalism.’
– Duncan Bell, University of Cambridge, UK
