Introduction to Part VI: Globalization from below and prospects for a just new constitutionalism

Chapter


Abstract


  • Part VI seeks to highlight some potential for moving beyond new constitutionalism

    and to develop alternative or insurgent forms of constitutionalism

    in order to advance a more just, democratic and progressive

    world order. The main themes involve:

    1. Constitutionalism as critique or critical perspectives on the new

    constitutionalism.

    2. The importance of linking the critical approach to 'globalizationfrom-

    below' scholarship to challenge and transcend the epistemological

    dominance of neo-liberalism.

    3. The political tensions and ethical contradictions between the constitution

    of the global political economy and the geopolitical practices

    and institutions that underpin and extend it.

    4. The need to transform the double standards, geopolitical contradictions

    and normative inadequacies of the new constitutional global

    order by means of a 'just new constitutionalism', for example as

    anchored in the 'radical promise' of the UN Declaration of Human

    Rights.
