Chapter Summary

This chapter attempts to extract the main constitutional themes that, according to the relevant author, makes their vision a global constitutional vision. The central focus of the various visions of global constitutionalism will determine how the contributions of largely contemporary academics are grouped. The chapter begins with visions of 'Social Constitutionalism', a vision defined by the idea that the international sphere is an order of coexistence. It describes 'Normative Constitutionalism' to categorise those views of global constitutionalism that centre on the importance of a common normative (value) system. The chapter discusses 'Analogical Constitutionalism'. Analogical Constitutionalism is advocated by scholars that find certain patterns in the international sphere which are familiar to them from their own legal systems.

Keywords:Analogical Constitutionalism; global constitutionalism; Normative Constitutionalism; Social Constitutionalism
