Almost anywhere in the world, new constitutions are written and passed at almost any time. Over the last couple of years, an increasing number of economists have analysed constitutions based on an economic approach with an emphasis firstly on the (economic) effects of constitutions and followed by the factors determining their content. The contributions assembled in this research review go one step further: they ask how the knowledge gained over the last number of years can usefully be applied to constitutional design. This new branch could also be termed applied constitutional economics.

Islam, and political Islam in particular, has been stylized in the West as incompatible with some fundamental norms of Western democracies. In this chapter, we ask whether political Islam is compatible with the rule of law. We argue that Muslims who prefer a traditionalist interpretation of Islam are unlikely to appreciate the rule of law. We further discuss specific areas in which Muslim societies might struggle with implementing the rule of law and discuss empirical evidence on the realization of the rule of law in Muslim and non-Muslim countries.
