Making a Constitution in a Globalized World

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This piece argues that constitutions must be documents which meet the needs and demands of the nation's people and that, as a nation's relationship with the world beyond its borders has increased in complexity in recent years, so individuals' expectations of their nation's constitutions have also increased considerably compared with the past. Using Northern Ireland as an exemplar, the chapter argues that Turkey has the potential to re-make itself through the adoption of a more modern, pluralistic and outward-looking constitution.
