Constitutionalism in the Age of Democratization

  • Andrea Buratti


In the third chapter, I presented the complex framework of western constitutionalism in the 19th century. During the century, the process of consolidation of the institutional framework of the state was remarkable; at the same time, individual liberties obtained a general acknowledgment and an effective protection, through a set of legal institutions and remedies developed within the framework of liberal constitutionalism. However, the progress of democratization was weak and uneven.
