The Law and Legitimacy of Imposed Constitutions

Edited by Richard Albert, Xenophon Contiades and Alkmene Fotiadou (Routledge 2018, 266 pages).
Constitutions are often seen as the product of the free will of a people exercising their constituent power. This, however, is not always the case, particularly when it comes to ‘imposed constitutions’. In recent years there has been renewed interest in the idea of imposition in constitutional design, but the literature does not yet provide a comprehensive resource to understand the meanings, causes and consequences of an imposed constitution.
