Thirty researchers with a combination of direct constitution-making experience and academic expertise present examples of constitution making in the contexts of state building and governance reform across a broad range of cultures, political circumstances, and geographical regions.The case studies focus equally on countries emerging from conflict and countries experiencing other types of transitions a move from autocratic rule to democracy, for example or periods of institutional crisis or major governance reform. Recognizing that there are no one-size-fits-all formulas or models, this volume illuminates the complexity of constitution making and the procedural options available to constitution makers as they build states and promote the rule of law.Contributors: Andrew Arato Louis Aucoin Andrea Bonime-Blanc Michele Brandt Allan R.
