Over the past thirty years, Latin America has lived through an intense period of constitutional change. While some reforms were limited in their design and impact, others were far-reaching transformations to basic structural features and fundamental rights. Scholars interested in the law and politics of constitutional change in Latin America are turning increasingly to comparative methodologies to expose the nature and scope of these changes, to uncover the motivations of political actors, to theorize how to better execute the procedures of constitutional reform, and to assess whether there should be any limitations on the power of constitutional amendment.
In this collection, leading voices in Latin American constitutionalism explore the complexity of the vast topography of constitutional developments, experiments and perspectives in the region. This volume offers a deep understanding of modern constitutional change in Latin America and of its implications for constitutionalism, democracy, human rights and the rule of law.
