Chapter Summary

This chapter begins with an examination of the basic common assumptions of global constitutionalism. It is arranged similarly in the follow the same structure: A description of the respective assumption or key theme including, where appropriate, a brief outline of the historical background; the concerns that grow out of the assumption or key theme; and the relevant dimension of global constitutionalism influenced by the assumption or key theme. The chapter discusses the key themes of global constitutionalism found to inform the prevailing dimensions of global constitutionalism. Rather than this being a criticism of liberal democratic government it attempts to unveil some of the ways in which liberal democratic traditions limit global constitutionalism. It is contended that the seeming divergences of the visions of global constitutionalism of public international law simply reflect the different visions and trajectories of liberalism.
