Chapter Summary

Postcommunist constitutionalism aims at providing the guiding rules that solve the most demanding issues of postcommunist consolidation and a language that facilitates communication about issues of public concern. Such a theory assists in the further development of the new constitutionalism, combating contingencies and choosing among the options made available by the increasingly complex and globalizing world. The fundamental question is whether the formation of postcommunist constitutionalism is based on clear conceptual foundations compatible with the specific requirements of a postcommunist society. This chapter summarizes the fact that, of the development of inventive and simultaneously clear-cut concepts and guidelines for postcommunist consolidation, the process of constitutionalism development proves especially difficult and demanding. It encompasses great efforts to overcome the burden of the past and to adapt to standards of liberal democracy.

Keywords: liberal democracy; postcommunist constitutionalism
