How should post-authoritarian states build a culture of constitutionalism? Does a written constitution matter? And what might it mean to say that a constitution actually matters? This panel addressed these themes from theoretical, historical, and empirical perspectives, using case studies to challenge the prevailing wisdom, much of which tends to be anchored in assumptions drawn from our own constitutional traditions. The twin purposes of this panel were, first, to enrich our understanding of post-authoritarian constitution-making and, second, to expose the presuppositions embedded within our own constitutional theory. The panel will be staffed by two younger comparativists — William Partlett and Ozan Varol — whose papers were selected among 30 outstanding papers in a double-blind review process (and are available through the links listed after their names below).
