(p.1) 1 Setting the Scene
The Constitutionalization of International Law

Jan Klabbers

Oxford University Press

This chapter sets the scene for the remainder of the book and discusses the various trends and phenomena to be analyzed later. In doing so, it situates constitutionalism in international law against the background of globalization, and posits it as, at least in part, a response to globalization, privatization, verticalization, and the pending fragmentation of international law. It fleshes out the main approach and working assumptions underlying the book. The chapter then focuses on various approaches to post-national constitutionalism, discussing liberal theories, but also systems-theory inspired approaches and pluralist approaches.

Keywords:   constitutionalism, pluralism, fragmentation, verticalization, privatization, globalization
