Kommentare/ Inhalte:
International relations are characterized by a dense web of legal regulation. In part, regulations obtain a life of their own so that the 'legalization' of world politics does no longer represent the full depth of the normative processes. Global Constitutionalism seeks to gain a deeper understanding of the normative foundations, limitations, and principles of political order as well as the corresponding processes and dynamics. Global Constitutionalism thus points to the (understanding of the) state of normative order in and beyond the international society of states. Accordingly, Global Constitutionalism is not necessarily focussed on the emergence of a Global Constition, understood as a written constitution of a future world polity. Instead, Global Constitutionalism points to

1) legal and political practices beyond the state, providing a distinct perspective on international relations and international law;
2) the problem that fundamental normative principles like democratic legitimicy have come under severe pressure in the course of globalization;
3) the extension of normative standards like democracy and/or human right to normative spheres beyond the state.
4) the emergence of constitutional equivalents beyond the state, i.e. the (sometimes sponaneous) development of dense private governance institutions, which regulate segments of world society without the direct involments of state actors.

Against this backdrop, Global Constitutionalism can be characterized as an interdisciplinary field located between the academic sub-disciplines of International Relations, International Law, International Political Theory, and Law and Society Studies.

Lernziel:
The seminar focuses on the constitutional development of international relations. The aim is to map normative developments beyond the state and, in part, even beyond the international world of states, i.e. world society. In so doing, Global Constitutionalism transcends the established boundaries of fields like International Relations, International Law, and Political Theory and, thus, challenges our thinking of normative order in the course of globalization.

Vorgehen:
The seminar will provide an introduction descriptive and normative constitutional theoy with regard to international relations and/or world society. We will study various strands of global constitutional theory--starting from the 'legalization' of world politics, via the fragmentation and constitutionalization of international law, to normative questions for democracy and human rights beyond the state and the emergence of spontaneous constitutionalization in world society. In addition, these perspectives will have to be challenged by means of critical theories of law and politics and/or postcolonial theories of international law.

Since Global Constitutionalism is by no means a clearly demarcated field of study, students are expected to develop perspectives on what the concept of the "constitution" means when unbound from the nation-state. In the end of the semester, students will produce brief papers on these visions to be presented and discussed in a "conference mode". These perspectives can then be extended with regard to the Hausarbeit.
