Law and Rights

Law and Rights: Global Perspectives on Constitutionalism and Governance
Edited by Penelope E. Andrews and Susan Bazilli

This book contributes to current legal and political debates regarding the rule of law, constitutionalism and rights enforcement. The authors explore the context, substance and meaning of constitutionalism in comparative perspective, as well as the influence of constitutionalism to national and global democracy endeavors and the rule of law. They analyze and interpret these issues from the perspectives of those who administer and implement constitutional mandates, such as legislators and judges. But they also examine constitutionalism from the perspectives of those who especially stand to benefit from constitutional provisions, particularly social and economic rights, and their enforcement. The authors individually and collectively provide a rich global constitutional tableau, with chapters covering the USA, South Africa, Australia, the United Kingdom, and Canada.
