“Some reflections on the concept of constitutional pluralism”

Eröffnungsvortrag

Martin Loughlin

Aula Campus Bockenheim

Within the last decade or so, a new concept has made its presence felt in the world of legal scholarship: the concept of constitutional pluralism. The term has been adopted by a significant number of scholars in a variety of contexts and using different methodologies. But behind these differences, there appears to be a common claim. This is that we are able to grasp the nature of the changes affecting the activity of governing in the contemporary world – and certainly to be able to respond effectively to them – only if ‘we posit a framework which identifies multiple sites of constitutional discourse and authority’. This is (to me) a puzzling notion. In my presentation, I will offer some sceptical reflections on the nature and utility of this novel concept.
