About the Authors
  • European constitutionalism is not merely an intra-European phenomenon but can also be compared to other major forms of constitutionalism. Over the past decade or so issues have emerged which seem to indicate that European constitutional theory and practice is becoming aware that it has developed certain rules and possesses certain characteristics which distinguish it from US constitutionalism and vice versa. The contributors to this book are constitutional scholars from Europe and the United States as well as from other constitutional states, such as Canada, Israel, Japan, Peru and South Africa.

    • This book goes beyond comparing merely national constitutionalisms by comparing transnational constitutionalism with national constitutionalism
    • Enhanced by the diversity, representativeness, and prominence of its authors
    • Results from a collaboration with the Council of Europe
