Chapter Summary

This chapter takes a closer look at the key themes that have been considered as the defining features of a global constitution. The chapter aims to answer the following questions: What are the origins of the five key themes of global constitutionalism? How do the ideas at the same time reflect the preoccupations of the thinkers of that day and age? How is it that these five themes are considered to be the building blocks of contemporary global constitutionalism by all participants to the debated? In order to address these questions, a number of assumptions had to be made. The chapter has been split into five sections, each pertaining to a certain time in history. The common division of Classical Antiquity, the (European) Middle Ages, the (Western) Modern Era, the time of Colonialism and Imperialism and Post-Modernity/the present-day has been adhered to.

Keywords:(European) Middle Ages; (Western) Modern Era; Classical Antiquity; Colonialism; global constitution; Imperialism
