Annual Review of Constitution-Building Processes: 2018
Drawing upon International IDEA’s in-house expertise as well as our network of academics and practitioners in the field of constitution-building, the Annual Review is intended to provide a space to reflect on trends, developments and changes in constitutional design and processes around the world. Since constitutions are at the heart of peacebuilding, state-building, rule of law, human rights, inclusion, accountability and good governance, understanding these trends is highly relevant to the international democracy-support and development community.
The Annual Review responds to topical events in the year in question. Thematically, the articles in this issue are all loosely connected to the challenges of coordination and cooperation, broadly conceived, in constitutional politics— especially in terms of the relationship between minorities and majorities, between coalition partners engaged in processes of constitutional reform, between external actors in state-building or stabilization efforts.
