A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. What challenges do Australian constitutional law, theory and practice each face now that globalisation - the unimpeded movement of people, money, information and ideas across national boundaries - is eroding the sovereignty of nation-states? Other writers have studied globalisation, but as a political, economic, social or environmental rather than a constitutional phenomenon. Works on Australian constitutionalism tend to assume that the centuries-old tradition of national sovereignty will continue. This book systematically discusses both topics in tandem, and analyses how each affects the other. Three key themes are reflected in the three parts in the book: Whither National Sovereignty, Constitutional Structures, and Individual and Minority Rights. The first discusses the decline of the external power of national governments relative to international organisations and NGOs. The second focusses on the declining internal power of national governments relative to legislatures, in particular Upper Houses, and to sub-national governments. The third charts the declining power of national governments relative to the citizens and minority communities they govern. These themes and the way they are elaborated in the book are explained in the Introduction. See Chapter Extracts, on this page. N° de réf. du libraire AA69781862873773

Review:

"Beyond the Republic ... collects 24 essays from a wide variety of contributors. ... There is not space here to discuss the essays in detail, or even to mention them all. That is unfortunate, because nearly all of them are worthy of comment. They are organised into three main groups, the first of which concerns national sovereignty, globalisation and the benefits and future of democracy. The second is about constitutional theory and structure including the operation of our federal system and what is known as "Washminster" (in a graceless allusion to the English and American systems). A final section covers constitutional protection of individual and minority rights. There is much food for thought in each. ... I would recommend the book for anyone with a serious interest in current constitutional debate in Australia and overseas. Federation Press is to be commended for publishing it." - Law Institute Journal (Vic), 2001
