Chapter Summary

The process of democratization could be greatly strengthened if the Community of Democracies or the Conference of New or Restored Democracies could lend their support to the group of states to confront unconstitutional moves. A democratic government needs and certainly deserves all the support that it can get. It is, therefore, important that the Community and the Conference should consider what they can do for their member governments when threatened by unconstitutional challenges. To help the regional institutions find an optimum approach, this chapter first explains the working of such measures in existing institutions and then suggests a possible mechanism focusing on six core issues for the consideration of those interested institutions. Finally, it provides a list of basic elements that should be embodied in a constitution.

Keywords: constitutional governments; democratic government; institutional mechanism; unconstitutional acts
