A theoretical split between traditional and contemporary federal theories generates two important aspects linked to constitutional asymmetries: firstly, the understanding of the stability of the constitutional system; and secondly, related to the first, the potentials of using constitutional asymmetries as a federal device in conflict accommodation. Unlike the traditional federal approach, the contemporary federal perspective remains open for dynamic interpretation of stability and for discussing the application of constitutional asymmetries as a tool ensuring the stability of the system. To that end, the paper explores: firstly, the theoretical split between traditional and contemporary federal theory with regards to multi-tiredness, multinationalism, and constitutional asymmetry; secondly, its effects on the stability of a system; and thirdly, prospects about using constitutional asymmetry in conflict accommodation.
