       Sociology of Constitution
 

 

The need for a critical understanding of the role of constitutions and constitutionalism in modern societies has recently emerged in the field of socio-legal studies. In the light of the crisis of a state-centred representation of law and the appearance of new forms of legal pluralism it is now important to understand constitutions in a less traditional fashion and to revisit their classical narrative taking into consideration transnational connections and internal fragmentations of legal orders.

The Working Group on Sociology of Constitution was created in 2014 and held its first sessions at the 2015 RCSL Annual Conference in Canoas, Brazil (5-8 May 2015). This WG intends to emphasize and strengthen the emerging field of a Sociology of Constitutions and the analysis of societal constitutionalism organizing workshops and meetings, and encouraging research partnerships and collaborations.

Chair: Alberto Febbrajo, Italy

Publications: Giancarlo Corsi, Alberto Febbrajo (eds.), Sociology of Constitutions: A Paradoxical Perspective, Ashgate, 2015 (forthcoming).
