Chapter Summary

This conclusory chapter of the book highlights some limitations of prevalent visions of global constitutionalism, and has made some suggestions for reducing such limitations. In examining the various contributions to the debate on global constitutionalism, the author ventured outside of what is traditionally understood to be public international law. It was highlighted in the questions on legitimacy that it is an assumption underlying all ideas of constitutionalism that, just as there is no society without law, so too there is no law without society. Organic global constitutionalism could provide a way of recovering the sense that international law is to be understood as a universal order, albeit a 'negative universal', since it requires the recognition of both fragmentation and the universal.
