Summary
  • "The metaphor of 'dialogue' has been put to different descriptive and evaluative uses by constitutional and political theorists studying interactions between institutions concerning rights. It has also featured prominently in the opinions of courts and the rhetoric and deliberations of legislators. This volume brings together many of the world's leading constitutional and political theorists to debate the nature and merits of constitutional dialogues between the judicial, legislative, and executive branches. Constitutional Dialogue explores dialogue's democratic significance, examines its relevance to the functioning and design of constitutional institutions, and explores constitutional dialogues from an international and transnational perspective"--
  • "The metaphor of 'dialogue' has been used to describe and evaluate institutional interactions and constitutional arrangements involving many of the most fundamental questions concerning democracy and rights. It has been put to a variety of descriptive and evaluative uses by constitutional and political theorists concerned with understanding interactions between democratic institutions, particularly interactions concerning rights. But it has also featured prominently in the opinions of courts, and even the rhetoric and deliberations of legislators. This volume brings together many of the world's leading constitutional and political theorists -both proponents and critics of dialogue theory. Together, they debate the nature and merits of constitutional dialogues between the judicial, legislative, and executive branches, explore dialogue's democratic and republican significance, examine its relevance to the functioning and design of different constitutional institutions, examine rights dialogues in specific constitutional contexts and cases of dialogue concerning certain rights, and explore constitutional dialogues from an international and transnational perspective"--
