(p.194) 7 Theory of Constitutional Politics
Governing with Judges

Alec Stone Sweet

Oxford University Press

The book's main findings are integrated into a theory of the dynamics of constitutional politics. Politicization and judicialization are expected to be found taking place together, and the conditions under which one produces the other are spelt out, both at the normative macro‐level and the strategically driven micro‐level. The analytically distinct features of the four stages that comprise this circular path are examined individually. In the final evaluation, the techniques of constitutional adjudication are argued to tend to diffuse; therefore, governing with judges also means governing like judges.

Keywords:   judicialization, politicization
