Handbook on Global Constitutionalism

Edited by Anthony F. Lang and Antje Wiener

This Handbook introduces scholars and students to the history, philosophy, and evidence of global constitutionalism. Contributors provide their insights from law, politics, international relations, philosophy, and history, drawing on diverse frameworks and empirical data sets. Across them all, however, is a recognition that the international order cannot be understood without an understanding of constitutional theory. The Handbook will define this field of inquiry for the next generation by bringing together some of the leading contemporary scholars.

Chapter 32: Global religion in a post-Westphalia world

Susanna Mancini


This chapter addresses how globalization, de-privatization, mass-scale migration and the rise of supranational constitutional organisms squarely challenge the premises of the Westphalian model of coordination of religion and political boundaries. First, it shows how the resurgence of strong religion impacts the interplay between faith and reason in a liberal polity. Next, it focuses on the influence of transnational religious actors on domestic and international law-making and litigation in the sphere of religious freedom and sexual and reproductive rights. Finally, it analyses the impact of politicized religion on the traditional Western models of managing the relationship between religion and the state.
