The Arab Spring

An Essay on Revolution and Constitutionalism

Antoni Abat i Ninet and Mark Tushnet

Approaching the concept of Islamic constitutionalism from a comparative perspective, this thought-provoking study by Antoni Abat i Ninet and Mark Tushnet uses traditional Western political theory as a lens to develop a framework for analyzing the events known as the ‘Arab Spring’. Writing with clarity and insight, the authors place Western and Arabic traditions into a constructive dialogue. They focus on whether we can develop a ‘theory of revolutions’ that helps us understand events occurring at divergent times at geographically separate locations.

Analysis of the texts of recently adopted constitutions in Venezuela, Bolivia, and Ecuador shows that they are committed to plurinationalism, a deep pluralism distinct from multinationalism, and to a substantial role for indigenous peoples in governance and in the national identity. They contain some innovative methods of public participation in governance, but, perhaps surprisingly, do not grant presidents substantially greater powers than are conventional elsewhere. These provisions can be understood as the outcome of processes of constitutional learning, both about structure and rights, the latter especially with respect to so-called third-generation rights.
