Chapter 15: Global constitutionalism and the rule of law
The rule of law is a distinct ideal that is focused on the conditions that law must fulfil in order for it to actually have the authority it claims to have. The chapter lays out what that means within the constitutionalist tradition, which takes as basic the idea of free and equals governing themselves through law. It ends by discussing the challenges of fragmentation and legal pluralism, deep diversity and the priority of power as contemporary challenges to the global institutionalization of the ideal.
